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 tabs.
I have attempted to make this website as easy as
possible to use despite huge web hosting
limitations. Please, note the warning. Adobe
Reader ( a free download ) is needed for viewing
most files. To locate or " find " using this application,
just right click your mouse and type in the key word.
 It is suggested to use ( or print ) the 21 pages of
"
detailed text "
to enable you to search for or cross
reference material. Within that reading, the
supplemental footnotes (
RED numbers = JPG
photographs,
BLUE numbers = PDF photographs,
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 !
