A copy of report DODIG-2016-050, "Chemical and Biological Training for Army and Marine Corps Units in the Republic of Korea Needs Improvement" (Project No. D2014-D000RF-0204.000)

Mr. Musgrave,

There was a typo in our last email. It should say "we ask that you review
the report, and if you are still interested in the information that is
redacted, contact us by close of business day March 24, 2016" instead of
March 21, 2016. We apologize.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello -

Yes, I consider this request to be closed. Please note, however, that a window of 24 hours is inappropriate to assess whether a proactive disclosure is sufficient to fulfill a FOIA request. Please consider amending this practice moving forward.

Thank you,
Shawn
