To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
As a survivor of the June 8, 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty currently serving my shipmates as Director of Operations of the USS Liberty Veterans Association I am requesting all correspondence, documents and reports prepared as a result of the USS Liberty Veterans Association's June 8, 2005 filing of "A Report: War Crimes Committed Against US Military Personnel, June 8, 1967."
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Joe Meadors:
This is in response to the attached Freedom of Information Act request. Please note that your request has been misdirected to this office for processing. As the Executive Agent for the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Army would have purview over the information you are seeking. If you have not already done so, you should submit your request directly to the Army component responsible for such records. Contact information for that office can be found online at: http://www.oaa.army.mil/index.aspx. This action closes your request with this office. There are no assessable fees associated with this response in this instance.
