News from J.J. Hays
15 June 2010

J.J. Hays, author of the United States Army Ground Forces TOE series, sends word about his latest efforts:

"I am in process of doing T/O series 5, which is the Corps of Engineers.This is an enormous undertaking. Since I put about 150 pages in each book that cover just organizational tables, it looks like it is going to take upwards of 10 separate books. Which tables appear in which book becomes a problem since I tend to do everything in order of T/O table numbers. This won't logically work with the Engineers since the types of units are so varied. I'm grouping the Combat Engineers separate from the Service Forces as an example."
