Document Acquisition Tip:
A significant number of the articles listed here appear to be from either Leatherneck Magazine or the Marine Corps Gazette. The Marine Corps Association is the publisher of both titles and maintains a database of full text articles from both periodicals at http://www.mca-marines.org/magazines-archive. If you are a member of the non-governmental Association, you can get free access here. Otherwise you’ll need to pay as the price of instant gratification. If you can wait, most articles can be obtained from your local library through interlibrary loan.
