- New, streamlined navigation buttons are featured in the left-hand navigation bar. Instead of listing all the individual war stories here, for example, you'll go to the war stories page where you can select which story you wish to read. This structure will enable us to add new material with less navigational updating.
- Check back frequently, as we'll be adding lots more pictures and stories, as well as some new features, including wallpaper backgrounds you can download and use for your computer desktop. If there's a particular picture on the site you'd like to see offered as wallpaper, let us know.
- With all the changes, we might have accidentally missed something. If you should notice any broken links or images, please e-mail the webmaster so we can get it fixed.
