Scope and Content Note
A collection of ALNAVs (messages directed to all Navy units and Marine Corps) dating from 1918-1984 was received in the Operational Archives Branch in September 1989. The Naval Military Personnel Command Library transferred these upon its disestablishment. In order to make this collection complete, ALNAVs held in the Command Files were integrated into this collection. The collection is incomplete, and covers the time period from 1918-1997.
This collection should be cited as ALNAVs, Archives Branch, Naval History and Heritage Command, Washington, D.C.
