Subject:Defense Manual Guides...? From:"Daniel M. Nester" <dmn4986 -at- IS -dot- NYU -dot- EDU> Date:Tue, 10 Jan 1995 03:18:56 GMT
Two years ago, I helped rewrite two defense manuals for the Army. It was
for a User Manual (-10) and the Maintenance (-20).
Does anybody have the formal titles for the style guides I went by?
There are a few titles I remembered consulting -- most referred to
phrasing and publishing. I am interviewing for a a job in coupla days,
and if anybody out there has those manuals on thier desk right know, it
would be great if I could throw those guides' names around.
Also, and more importantly, I have had no access at all in getting copies
of the manuals I worked on. Not even a declassified proof. Anybody have
comments or tips in getting copies through the Aberdeen, MD Proving
