    Story by Robert Hill 

    Army Sustainment Command - Redstone Arsenal Detachment

    Since June 1951, PS: The Preventive Maintenance Magazine (aka PS Magazine) has been “informing Army readiness” by reporting on proper maintenance and supply procedures, as well as safety related to keeping vehicles and equipment combat ready. In November 2019, the magazine went fully online, making it easier for its readers to get the information they need in a timely fashion anytime, day or night, year-round.

    Every day, the magazine’s staff comes to work committed not only to reporting on maintenance and supply best practices but also implementing refinements to the website that enhance readers’ experience. For example, it has created a series of How-To videos on ways to optimize the website’s features and tools.

    One of these videos overviews the Fleets page, which can be accessed by the Fleets tab in the menu bar. This page enables visitors to zero in on specific platforms, end items, pieces of equipment or topics and see every article written on that specific fleet.

    For example, under the Aviation category, readers will find fleet pages devoted to Apache, Black Hawk, Chinook, Lakota and more. Click on any one of these fleet titles, such as Apache, and a new page appears that lists every article on the Apache aircraft published to the PS Magazine website since its inception.

    Over 80 fleet pages have been created. More will be developed as new systems are fielded and some eliminated if that fleet has been completely decommissioned.

    If you feel a fleet page is missing or needed, or an existing page needs refinement, don’t hesitate to contact PS Magazine at and recommend changes.
