Please note:  due to problems keeping updated publications available, we have modified, in most cases, the links on this page to take you directly to the service/agency publications websites instead of ours.  This ensures that you always have access to the most recent version of a publication.  The downside to this, however, is that, in our experience, DoD agencies tend to change website names or file locations. The result is that you may receive a 'page not found' error. We will try to update this page and verify addresses monthly.  If you find a link that is broken, please let us know by email to contact@jmarprotocol.com .
