To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the United States Air Force’s Personnel Files on Devin Patrick Kelley (Born February 21, 1991, deceased November 5, 2017 ), including performance reports, job assessments, disciplinary records, training received, discharge papers, and any other releasable records.
According to publicly available news reports, Kelley served in the Air Force in logistics readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico until his discharge in 2014
The public interest in Kelley should favor disclosure of many of these records, as well as minimal privacy interest since the individual is deceased.
If you determine that another agency has custody of the requested records, please let me know.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
