How to order photos of your recruit.
Orders from family members, loved ones, friends or other acquaintances will not be accepted until after graduation to reduce the possibility of refund processing. The Navy Exchange recommends discussing the purchase with the recruit / new sailor before an order is submitted.
The Navy Exchange handles orders only on-site or email transactions. They accept all major credit cards. If you place your order within the first five days following the new Sailors graduation date, you will receive a “Keel”. The “Keel” for the Training Group is only available during this period. The pictures will arrive 5-7 weeks after PIR / Graduation and the “Keel” 8-10 weeks after PIR / Graduation.
Check with your recruit before ordering if possible
