Enlistees in uniform, photographed

Where can I find photos (portraits) of veterans in uniform, taken during their enlistment? Is this the kind of thing that's kept on file in military records?

Specifically I am looking for a properly-sourced photo of one of the African American enlistees involved in the Port Chicago mutiny in 1944. I have a list of names of people I could search for, but I'm not sure where or how to go about it. Are there photos like that available with individual service records or something? Is this something I could order through the National Archives?
(I have found a couple but they aren't sourced, and I need one for a project that requires obtaining use permission. Google images is not proving terrifically useful.)
