    Seeking photograph of Troop 2098

    Cynthia Alvarado Newbie

      I need help finding the Troop 2098 picture from San Diego, CA in 1997. My husband graduated from the Marine Corps in 1997, in San Diego,  CA and his troop was 2098. I am unable to find it anywhere. Please help.

            Dear Ms. Alvarado,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            Although there may be group photographs intermingled with textual records of the units, they are not considered permanent records unless the photographs were taken by the Marine Corps or other official military photographers usually for publicity. Photographs considered permanent records are part of the photograph collections in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS). Please contact RDSS via email at stillpix@nara.gov.

             

            Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

             

            Sometimes, the instructors of a training facility paid for a civilian photographer to come to the base to take pictures, These photographs sometimes are filed in the records of the unit but oftentimes they are just distributed to the individual members with no permanent copy kept.

             

            We hope this is helpful.
