Publications: Are Paper TMs Still Available?

Dear Half-Mast,

We have multiple vehicles without a -10 TM available for the operators to perform PMCS. That means that a lot of equipment gets dispatched without maintenance or the
knowledge of how to properly operate them. This has led to an inability to identify deadline faults that might damage the vehicle, injure the operator or both.

Is there any way to reorder paper TMs to replace the ones that are missing?   

Dear Sergeant,

Don’t worry. We have you covered.

You can order publications through the AMC Media Distribution Division (MDD) Order Portal.

To get a hard copy of a TM, someone in the unit needs to have a publications account. See AR 25-38 and especially DA PAM 25-38 (section 5-5) for instructions on setting up an account. Keep in mind that printing some publications might be delayed due to funding limits.
The US Army Materiel Command (AMC) Logistics Data Analysis Center (LDAC) is the official website for Department of the Army technical and equipment publications. View or download publications from LDAC's ETM/IETM Online website. If the publication is electronic media only (EMO), operators need to use suitable display devices to view them.
