The Army Publishing Directorate (APD) appreciates all the feedback provided by our customers. This feedback enables APD to make improvements geared toward creating a web presence that is intuitive and user-friendly for all the Army's publishing needs. Based on user feedback, we have added additional search criteria on the Pub/Form Records Search page. This latest enhancement allows users to search by the Unit of Issue (UoI) or Publication Identification Number (PIN) of a Pub/Form. We created a new page for ALARACT. You can access it from our dropdown menu>PUBLICATIONS>Administrative>Army ALARACT Message link.
