I have a 332B as well, although it's been loaned out for the past couple of 
years to a friend.  I have the US Army manual PDF also, and have found it to 
be pretty complete, at least complete enough to get us through a couple of 
What is missing from the manual?

The second page in the PDF has a statement that says:
"This manual is an authentication of the manufacturer’s commercial 
literature which, through usage, has been found to cover the data required 
to operate and maintain this equipment. Since the manual was not prepared in 
accordance with military specifications, the format has not been structured 
to consider level of maintenance, nor to include a formal section on depot 
overhaul standards.
This manual contains copyrighted information that is printed with permission 
of John Fluke Manufacturing Company, Seattle, Washington."

>From that statement, I expect that the Army manual is just a reproduction of 
the commercial Fluke manual for the 332B.
