As of June1, 2017, this site already had over HTML 1,850 pages. This means that it is sometimes difficult to find specific items. The purpose of this index is to hopefully provide, both the Webmaster and those who view this site, an easier means of finding things.
Please note that the material on the AFVN Roster, the POWs: The Honored and the Taps: Those Departed pages are not included in this index. This is because the entries on those pages are already in alphabetical order. In practice, this means if you want to see if John Doe was a member of AFVN, or information on someone from AFVN who was a prisoner of war or is deceased, you should go directly to those pages (except for the slide shows, these links are in the navigation area at the top of every page). But if you want to see where else John Doe might be mentioned on this site, then look for his name under the "D's" of this index. Also, some photos on a page may be not included in the index. I.E., photos of John Doe on his own Photos and Stories page are not in the index. However, a photo of John on someone else's page will be in the index." Also, beginning with the 2012 Reunion, the names on the list of attendees are not in the index because they are already in alphabetical order.
The slide shows are currently in a state of flux. At present (June 2017), a number of the slide show photos are numbered. These photos are also in the index individually (to repeat, with the exception of John Doe's photos in his own Photos and Stories page). For those slide shows yet to be numbered, the individual photos are not so indexed. The indexed photos from the slide shows are sometimes indicated with a number--particularly if there is more than one photo of that person or place in the same slide show. Another thing to note is that some of the people and places in the slide shows are duplicates (i.e., a photo of the same person or place but taken by different individuals). These are marked as being in "(Ashley)" or whomever's slide show it might be.
Note that the links in this index work in two different ways. (1) Links to numbered photos in a slide show go to that specific photo within the slide show and come up in a separate browser tab. Closing the tab will return you to the Index. If the photo has a specific title or theme, that is used as the link. If not, then the link for these photos is shown as "DE#xx" (initials of the person who submitted the photo plus #xx). 2) Otherwise, the links go to the top of the page the item is on and are in the same tab. From there, you may have to either scroll down or use CTRL+F to use your browser's search menu in order to find what you want. Using your browser's "back arrow" will return you to the top of the previous index page.
Also please note that while almost all of the entries are in bold black, some of the entries also have "Page" in brown to the right of the entry. This is because many of the links on this site go to videos, PDF files and outside links which do not indicate what page on this site the original link is located. Clicking on the "Page" link will take one to that page. While this information might not be of that much importance to the average viewer, it is useful to the Webmaster whenever he has to make a correction or a add a related item.
In closing, as this index is a major project, please bear with the Webmaster
until it is more complete (most likely it will never be "really finished").
Thank you, Webmaster
Incomplete and under continuous construction!
