Don't know about retirees, but that's a good point about active duty.

I'd forgotten about this, I think in the front of the manuals is a blurb
about how non-military can obtain them. The caveat being that they are
non-classified manuals. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Data
Systems Technician manuals were, but the rest I was talking about weren't.
I assume you also have to be a US citizen.
