Communication Strategy & Operations

CommStrat supports all administrative photo requirements for MBW personnel. These requirements consist of Command Board, Official, Award, and OMPF photos. For all studio photography, individuals must have an administrative photo verification form. For OMPF photos, Marines MUST have a verified height/weight completed within the previous 30 days.


To create an appointment, download and complete the administrative photo verification form and email GySgt. Donell Bryant,
