On-hand Graduation books.
This forum should be used to list those boot camp graduation books that you have in hand.
This forum has been created for your use in helping our Marine brother and sisters find those graduation books that have been lost over the years for one reason or another.

Over this last year Yellow Footprints has received a number of books that are stored in our archives.

For members like CMYR who purchased a large number of books, these books can and will be listed in this forum section for your review.
IF you find a book that a member has listed that is your platoon book, it will be up to you to make contact with that member via his/her email address in their profiles.

If you need assistence, the Yellowfootprints team will be happy to help. Due to the workload of the staff we do ask that you FIRST contact the listing member first.

As a side note: THIS forum is not a place for those selling books, it is an informational listing forum ONLY.

Carry On Marines!!

Yo, coach! The search works fine if you have a 4-digit platoon number. If the platoon number is only 3-digits, you need to put a zero in front of it. Both in the thread and the search box.

Cpl Miller 10-09-2007 02:53 PM

Thanks for the test Nancy,
and the heads up for searching platoon numbers.

Bottom line folks, this allows us to post more than one platoon number in a thread. This way, as we add platoon numbers we'll be able to add them to the same thread.

No need to create more than one thread for each platoon number.

For now...
hold off on posting books of boot camp book searches until we get this site up and running fully. We are still in the process of updating the site and do not want to loss and data you may enter.

Thank you for your understanding.

Still Searching
Platoon 2095, graduated from MCRD San Diego in December 1976.

I'm told by the Marine Corps Museum Archives that 1975 and 1976 books are not available... Does anyone know why or does anyone have a platoon photo from 2095?

Cpl Miller 01-28-2009 07:23 AM

I've sent a request....
to my contact at the Historical Society to see if they can supply an answer to your question of why they do not have books and or platoon pictures for the years you mentioned above.

Oh, yeah, I also have the Platoon photo.

Cpl Miller 04-09-2009 10:36 AM

Send your platoon information..
to; and we'll get your platoon section created and upload your pictures. If you want your email address added to your platoon section you'll need to give us your permission which you can state in your email.


Cpl Miller 04-20-2009 07:49 AM

Any Chance...
you can scan the book so we can enter it into the boot camp database?

My Father is 85 Graduated PI Feb/March 1942, served on the Canal with 1st Marine Div. looking for Grad book if it exist, I was at PI Sept/66 and my Son is active duty Grad PI in 2004.

Cpl Miller 05-13-2009 06:02 PM

Keep coming back,
Although the boot camp database is down for maintance keep checking back. We've been averaging over 200 platoon entries a month for some time now, so his book or platoon picture just may show up.

Do you have the year book for Ptn 1075 from MCRD San Diego? We graduated on 02Nov1990. I left mine with my family for safe keeping and it has gone MIA. I have been looking for one for a couple of years with no joy. I contacted the MCRD PR office and they have nothing from that long ago. Any quidance would be greatly apprecaited.

Hi, Dont you print the graduates pictures that are in the book any more.

You have PISC Plt 403 17Nov54 picture which isnt really clear. You dont have the book with group pictures.
If you have this book could you make copies of the group pictures.

Cpl Miller 07-21-2009 08:19 AM

No we done not print books or pictures we recieve, we scan books unless their sent in already scanned. What you see in the database in each platoon section is all that we've recieved for that platoon. There are however times when we recieve additional pictures and information for platoon's already listed where we add that information as we recieve it.

It should be noted that we have provided copies of platoon sections to those Marines that have lost their platoon information for one reason or another. We do NOT however sell any platoon pictures we have on file, for those that want an original copy of their platoon picture we direct them to the Marine Corps Historical Society in San Diego for those Marines that graduated from San Diego. Parris Island is a different story though, PI only keeps platoon information going back four years.

I hope that answers your questions.

Looking for graduation pictures of plt3111 graduated Feb 1974.


Zebra29er 09-04-2009 11:44 AM

OK here goes for a shot in the dark , I have lost all my records in a fire in 1981 ( my house ) and I have been trying to put them back together , I have my DD214, and some of my med records , I served a head injury in 1990 and lost some of my memory , That and old age ( 65 ) lol I can not remember my grad, platoon at PI all I know for sure it was in 1961, May or June. Any suggestions on how to find out what platoon I graduated with and maybe some pictures or a Grad. book .

cmyr 09-04-2009 12:09 PM

Since you have your DD-214, look on it for an active duty commencement (start) date. That would give you the day you left for boot camp.

In 1961, I believe boot camp was 8 weeks. (Correct me if I'm wrong, my brothers.) Then add 8 weeks to the boot camp start date, you'll have roughly the month and date that you graduated boot camp. From there we can check our database to get and idea of what other platoons would have graduated around the time you did. And it would give us an approximate platoon number to search for.

It would also help if you can remember if your recruit barracks was near the rifle range or the parade deck so we could narrow down the battalion you went through training with.


Cpl Miller 10-04-2009 02:55 PM

Parris Island, Platoon 3004
I've added a new book sent in for scanning and an addition to our in-house archives. Parris Island, 1968 (Oct) platoon 3004. This book has already been added to our boot camp database.

Greeting Marines!
My father, Charles (Chuck) Dudley, graduated from M.C.R.D. PI on Aug 25-1965 Platoon 335, 3rd Recruit Battalion. I am looking for this yearbook.

I have the graduation photo (scanning it later today and will send it in) and possibly anyone that knew of him or was in his Platoon.

My dad didn't share much information regarding his duties in the Corps, and now that he has passed, I am attempting to find out any and all information I can regarding him and his duty to God, U.S.M.C. and country.

If you have any information regarding my father - OR - how I could obtain such information, feel free to email me @


Rob Dudley

Jeffhuey1n 10-27-2009 10:31 PM

There are many sources of info. They include Ebay for his graduation book (I'm still looking for mine), Amazon (same thing) and others. Also, there are many Marine web sites with forums you might try. One other way I've had success with is entering a name in Google along with dates, Platoon number and any names that may help such as Senior Drill Instructor. Hope this helps. Good luck!
