About Search on DefenseLINK

A spider crawls the DefenseLINK web site daily starting at 5:30. It picks up all files on the site except those named "index.html". In addition, selected types of regularly-occuring documents (AFIS & DDI news, speeches, AFRTS Radio News, News Photos) are indexed immediately (within seconds) after they appear on the DefenseLINK web site.

This spider does not crawl the entire .mil domain, but instead only the areas described below. To search outside of the DefenseLINK web site for military related information, see other search sources .
