• Search Rules

    This website search helps you find documents on this website. It works simply by typing in keywords, phrases, or questions into the search box, then depressing the "Search" button. The search engine responds by giving you a list of all the pages in our index relating to those topics, with the most relevant content appearing at the top of your results.

    Tips for More Exact Searches

    Don't worry if you find a large number of results. It is recommended that you use a number of words when searching. Even though the number of results may large, the most relevant content will always appear at the top of the results page. Searches are not case-sensitive, so searching for "Marine Corps" will match the lowercase "marine corps" as well as the uppercase "MARINE CORPS".

    Including or Excluding Words

    To make sure that a specific word is always included in your search topic, place the plus (+) symbol before the key word in the search box. For example, to find all references to the Marine Corps League, try "marine corps +league". This search will ensure that only references to the Marine Corps League will be returned. To exclude a specific word from your search topic, place a minus (-) symbol before the keyword in the search box. For example, to find references to the Marine Corps, excluding the Marine Corps League, try "marine corps -league".
