Do not X out ( close ) in upper right hand corner until you
are completely done. Use back button ( < ) in upper left
hand corner for continued viewing of file pages or
colored folders. Opening ( and closing ) in " new tabs "
works O.K.
I have attempted to make this website as easy as possible to
use despite huge web hosting limitations. Please, note the
warning ( above ). Adobe Reader ( a free download ) is
needed for viewing most files. To locate or " find " using this
application via Windows Internet Explorer, just right click your
mouse and type in the key word. It is suggested to use ( or
print portions of ) the 500 pages of " detailed text " to enable
you to search for or cross reference material. Within that
reading, the supplemental footnotes (
RED numbers =
photographs,
BLUE = photograph related, GREEN numbers =
files,
BLACK numbers = credits and P = commander
photographs. ) will point you to the colored tabs for
additional, comprehensive insight. Take advantage of those
features. I trust this will be an enjoyable learning experience.
Thank-you !
