          Dear Ms. Hoard,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          The "official" photos of individuals, taken by the military, are not considered to be permanent federal records by the respective military services and are not retained by the service. If the photo you are seeking still exists, it will most likely be found in the individual's Official Military Personnel File. However, there is no guarantee the photo will be present.

           

          We hope this information is helpful.

            Hi Mary, if you know your late husband's military unit and specific regiment, you might try an internet search for that unit. There are quite a few websites (including Facebook pages) for veterans and families (especially for Airborne troops) that sometimes post photos. I was able to find my dad's unit photo that way. Hope this helps. joan
