     D.  PHOTOS AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.  EACH MARINE MUST ENSURE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE PROPERLY TAKEN, TIMELY SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS ARE MET AND THEIR PHOTOGRAPH IS SUBMITTED AND RECEIVED BY THE BOARD.  MARINES WHO DO NOT SUBMIT A CURRENT PHOTOGRAPH OR LETTER TO EXPLAIN THE LACK OF A PHOTOGRAPH ARE PUTTING THEMSELVES AT A DISADVANTAGE BEFORE THE BOARD AND ARE HIGHLY UNLIKELY TO BE SELECTED.  MARINES WHO NEGLECT TO EXERCISE DUE DILIGENCE IN CONFIRMING THEIR PHOTOGRAPH POSTED TO THEIR OMPF WITHIN 3 TO 5 BUSINESS DAYS OF SUBMISSION AND WHO NEGLECT TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE THEY IDENTIFIED THE ERROR WITH MMSB BEFORE THE CONVENING DATE ARE UNLIKELY TO RECEIVE FAVORABLE ENDORSEMENT FOR REMEDIAL PROMOTION CONSIDERATION.  MARINES ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THEIR PHOTO POSTS TO THEIR OMPF WITHIN 3 TO 5 BUSINESS DAYS OF SUBMISSION VIA MARINE ONLINE.  IF THE PHOTO FAILS TO POST, THE INDIVIDUAL MARINE MUST CONTACT MMSB TO IDENTIFY THE ISSUE FOR RESOLUTION IN ORDER FOR THE PROMOTION BOARD TO PROPERLY CONSIDER THE
