Declassified Documents

Cross Reference File
(5/7/96)

The 1990-1991 Gulf War Cross Reference List is a finding aid for conducting searches in the operational military documents on GulfLINK. By searching for a word in this cross reference file, you may find one or more additional words, terms, or acronyms that are associated with your term. As you search GulfLINK documents, you may wish to search separately for some or all of the associated terms. We intend the Cross Reference list to be a finding aid, especially for researchers unfamiliar with military terminology, and not a complete index to the GulfLINK documents. It does not contain all possible terms and words that may be related to a specific topic, and some of the words in the Cross Reference list may not result in "hits" on the documents currently on GulfLINK.
