Communications

From: Drone Watch

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A spreadsheet/database of the underlying data cited in Table 3 in the report, "Assessment of U.S. Military Cemeteries," published 28 June 2013.

Here is a link to the report: http://www.dodig.mil/pubs/documents/DODIG-2013-098.pdf

Statistical Analysis
The 2012 NDAA called for a statistical sample of military cemeteries to carry out this inspection.
Based on conversations with HASC Staff and the Military Departments, we ultimately chose to
assess all military cemeteries and do a statistical sample of the graves within each of the military
cemeteries. The resulting statistical analysis was based on a 95 percent confidence level and a 5
percent error rate.
14
The statistical results are only projectable for those cemeteries observed.
However, the error rates and types can be inferred to apply to all cemeteries.
Table 3 displays the statistical analysis rollup for the Department (DoD) and by Service. The
total population was 34,123 interments with a sample of 6,387. Both observed and projected
errors for Tier I and Tier II errors are also displayed.
15
All interments were accounted for. The
Tier I errors included missing headstones, missing headstone inscriptions, or missing paperwork.

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.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave
