Soldiers are still asking where they can pick up a copy of the latest Warrior Words newsletter. Some are wondering how to get a back issue so they can find a story or keep a copy for their memoirs.

The newsletter, an official publication of the CSMR Regional Support Command – South, was absorbed here into the command’s www.csmrSoldier.com website beginning in early 2012. The newsletter no longer exists as a print publication.

However, all 17 issues of the newsletter that were printed during its run from 2008 to 2011 can now be found online. The issues are conveniently archived as full-color, downloadable PDFs on the Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS), a free global public affairs network that serves all U.S. military services.
