MCB CAMLEJ Combat Camera Temporary Studio Hours
Beginning 20 June 2016, the MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ Combat Camera administrative photography studio, BLDG 54, will be under renovation through October 2016. COMCAM will continue to provide administrative photography support using a smaller studio space. Since the temporary studio cannot accommodate multiple photography requirements simultaneously, COMCAM will be operating under modified hours of operation during the renovation:
For promotion, passports, and chaser photographs, personnel should come in:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 0730 to 0930 and 1300 to 1400.
- Tuesdays and Thursdays – 0730 to 0930 only.
For command board photographs, personnel should come in:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 1000 to 1130 and 1400 to 1500.
- Tuesdays and Thursdays – 1000 to 1130 only.
The COMCAM front entrance will be closed during the renovation. Signs will direct personnel to a temporary entrance in the rear of BLDG 54. The temporary entrance to the studio is located on Post Lane Road, adjacent to the MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ G-3/5 Supply and H&S Bn Bravo Co parking lot. Personnel will check in at the temporary customer service area which will be the lobby area to the left as you enter BLDG 54 through the temporary entrance. COMCAM will resume normal hours of operation and services when the renovation is completed.
