To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Aug. 4, 2017. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed. You had assigned it reference number #DON-USMC-2017-009194.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Thank you for the follow up concerning your case. I have begun the process of closing out your request due to non-responsiveness, but it has not been completely closed yet. I would be happy to keep your request open if you would provide some clarification concerning your request and address if you are willing to pay processing fees that may be incurred while processing your request. More details concerning these two issues are contained within the attachments.
A letter dated August 15, 2017, was sent to you via certified mail requesting clarification. The letter sent was not a letter stating, "the request is being processed" as stated in your email. I have attached the letter and the return postcard confirming delivery to the mailing address provided for your reference.
If your response is not received by September 26, 2017, I will have to close your request due to non-responsiveness and you will have to make a new request.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
