All Hands Magazine
Magazine of the U.S. Navy
The first "issue" of All Hands was printed as the Bureau of Navigation News Bulletin No. 1 (dated Aug. 30, 1922). Twenty years later, the title was changed to Bureau of Naval Personnel Information Bulletin. As America claimed "Victory in Europe" on the cover of June 1945, the magazine's new banner read, All Hands, and the name stuck.
We believe it's important to make the Navy's history, as documented in All Hands, accessible to everyone. In January 2003, we completed a two-year project to archive every back issue (more than 80 years worth) in Adobe Acrobat® format.
