In this issue, as in every December issue for the past 40 years, we are publishing our annual index—a listing by subject and author of the articles, and by book author of the reviews, published over the past year. Similar indexes were published in 1966–79 but occasionally appeared in the January rather than December issues. Articles on the web are indexed as well. Our website, www.mca-marines.org/gazette, contains links to archived articles back to 1916, as well as annual indexes from recent years. We commend these indexes to your attention as they are a guide to the many articles of lasting value that have been published in the Gazette.
Most letters are not indexed. We also continue to index selected news items in an attempt to provide you with more opportunities to review Gazette information.
