Main Page: The American Military in Turkey at @comcast.net9;                            

Editors Note:
This is an historic document, and, unfortunately it was originally submitted as an already-written HTML web page. In its original form, it is not displayable on today's web browsers, and as with all tradeoffs, in its current form this web page may have been very slow to load on your computer.
    Not to get overly technical, web pages are now designed with "Cascading Style Sheets" calling the shots for the look of web pages. The layout "engine" behind web pages is an extensible language called XHTML which now governs the layout and structure of webpages.
    We have, for several months now, been carefully updating all the web pages on our website to comply with these ever-changing current standards, and the original version of this page was written in 1980s HTML code and did a mighty good job of preserving the look and feel of the original newsletter thanks to the ingenious work and patience of author John Brasko (applause!). But modern web browsers can no longer adequately display 1980s code.
    So here's how we preserved this document using today's technoid world: we merely photographed it in bits and pieces. The newsletter below actually consists of 19 photographs stitched together by XHTML and CSS code. This will affect what you as a viewer can do with it.
    In order to save or copy material from the page you will need to right-click an area and choose "save images as", then go on to the next area and do the same, saving each piece you clicked as a .jpg picture. In stitching the photos together, the places where they join should be invisible, but to make it easier, so you can know where you're clicking, we have numbered the images top to bottom pic1.jpg through pic19.jpg. If you right-click an area and choose "SAVE IMAGE AS," your computer will show you the name/number of the pic you're saving.
    Why did we do it this tedious and slow way? Because no matter how we approached this project using today's coding, the look of the page changed. Using modern fonts, it was too "organized-looking" too...well..."codish." Believe us: we invested so many hours on this project that we lost count, and if there had been any other way to update, yet maintain the original look, we would have done it. Thanks to our web wonders, Karen, Jim, Lisa, and Darren, you're looking at as near an original as possible.
