Army-Related Magazines Switch to Web-Only Publications
FORT BENNING, GA—The hard-copy versions of two venerable Army publications have been told to stand down. Both the Armor and Infantry magazines have switched to Web-only publications following a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) mandate to phase out commercial printing contracts, the Bayonet & Saber reported.
The publications have been planning for the transition for about 18 months. Armor's last printed copy was it 125th anniversary edition, while the final Infantry paper issue will be out shortly.
In addition to the Website versions, the two publications will also feature versions compatible with e-readers including Nook and Kindle. Both Infantry and Armor have either planned or are in the process of archiving back issues. Armor will also transition from a quarterly publication to a bimonthly.
