Hello and Thanks for your service!  We found a 9x29” framed pic of just under 100 soldiers. 
2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry, ___ Company.  Date 1966
A Boot Camp graduation? 
I’d like to give it to a person in this pic.  Not sure how to locate soldiers in this pic.  Are there online groups to recommend.

The photo is not a boot camp graduation.  It is a company picture of 2d Battalion, 2d Infantry Training Regiment, or ITR as we called it back then.  (And those are Marines, not soldiers.)  I am unaware of any online ITR groups, so Terry’s offer may be your best bet.  When I went throught ITR in 1965, the training lasted for only four weeks….

Thank you both for your replies.  I stand corrected….Marines :) 
Since we found this pic in OKC and the framers sticker on the back is in this area, it seems the owner or family are here.  I’ll try to find local sources of help.  Thanks!

Brother, My offfer still stands, Yes, back then Boot camp, 3 stage, training,range, graduation, then ITR. then you were sent to what ever school, (if any) most guys were 0311 and sent over. I was sent to other schools, and was at C.P. 2nd HQ, in orders, (legal) for 1 1/2 months, until my next school…
I have a few fellow brothers I knew that are in the local P.D.s . and I retired a cop, and still licensed PI. so if you have a name. I live 10 miles from the base. No problems. in the picture, there should be a company/paltoon/unit number. send that, and the date…..
Only if you decide.
