	I have a book about private military companies. I've noticed that LC 
has used the classification number U240 (Small wars. Guerrilla warfare. 
Indian fighting ) with the subject heading Private military companies. 
One of my colleagues suggested the possibility of adding "including 
private military companies" to the caption. However, since the use of 
private military companies is a question of military policy and 
organization, I'm more inclined to propose a new class number in 
schedule UA (Armies: Organization, distribution, military situation) 
somewhere between UA10-17. I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.
