Okay a friend of mine (who is not a tech writer and works in a completley
different field than I do) asked me to send him a copy of a user manual I
created so he could possibly show it to the tech writers he works with
(he's trying to help me find a job).

Is this ethical to do? I have no idea. Do I have to remove all screen
shots and change the name of the application? technically, i wrote the
manual, but clearly it belongs to the client. Can I use a document I have
written as part of my work portfolio as it is now, or do I need to change
names and facts of the material?
