Dear Mr. Brown,

We continue to process your FOIA request 17-F-0312. It is our policy that each request receives prompt attention, and every effort is made to treat all requesters equally. As previously noted, our backlog at the time your request was received was 2,036 open requests. Your request has been tasked for a search for records. Once a search response is received, all releasable records, if any, must be thoroughly reviewed and completely processed prior to their release. As soon as that occurs, you will be sent a formal response letter to your request. Please note the unusual circumstances concerning your request are: (a) the need to search for and collect records from a facility geographically separated from this Office; (b) the potential volume of records responsive to your request; and (c) the need for consultation with one or more other agencies or DoD components having a substantial interest in either the determination or the subject matter of the records. These three factors do
have an effect on the processing of your request. Your patience and understanding in this matter is appreciated.

Thank you,
