In response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Federation of American Scientists, the Marine Corps agreed to release all public access and unclassified doctrinal documents on its Web site.
Publications are actively being loaded with the goal of having all distribution A publications (approved for public release) loaded onto this site as soon as possible,” Marine Captain E.C. Snyder wrote in a letter to the FAS earlier this month.
This partial access was granted on the heels of a similar move made by the Army’s Reimer Digital Library last month. After previously having barred access to all documents, the Army agreed to release unclassified information following FOIA action also taken by the FAS.
