To Whom It May Concern:

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

Documents concerning Mental Health of former USPS employees that have gone "postal". Specifically medical documents, letters sending employees to fit-for duty exams, ... of Patrick Sherrill, Joseph M. Harris,Thomas McIlvane, Lawrence Jasion , Mark Richard Hilbun, Jennifer San Marco, Grant Gallahe,

After going "postal" most of the above killed themselves as can be noted on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Going_postal. If any are still alive the public interest out ways privacy interest for this request. For additional information please see my request for document concerning Stephen Paddock at https://www.muckrock.com/foi/united-states-of-america-10/medical-and-personnel-records-of-stephen-paddock-44419/

I'm requesting these documents for public evidence of games I know the USPS and psychiatrist played to drive me into psychosis such as wrong address for fit for duty exam. As anyone not familar with such games would most likely not check the address on fit for duty letters or if they did realize the address was wrong would most likely dismiss the wrong address as accidental and of no importance. Such "accidental" wrong address on fit for duty letter is but one of the games the USPS and psychiatrist use to drive people into psychosis.

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.

Sincerely,

Don M. Moore

Good morning, Mr. Moore:

This is not a properly formulated Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request because the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) would not have the personnel records of the U.S. Postal Service employees. You need to send your request to the FOIA/Privacy Act Office of the U.S. Postal Service.

You have the right to appeal this determination. Should you wish to do so, pursuant to 5 CFR ยง 294.110, you must send a copy of your initial request, a copy of the email response denying the request, and a statement as to why you believe the denying official erred within 90 days from the date of this email to:

Subject: FOIA request for OPM FOIA public liaison
I'm asking for assistance with FOIA request First I made a request for records on Steven Paddock (via MuckRock) to the National Archives and the response was such records are in the hands of the OPM. I then requested records of other formal USPS workers that have gone "postal" to the OPM figuring since I was told by the Archives that the OPM had Mr. Paddock's records they would also have other formal USPS records. The Archives forwarded my request to the OPM (seems a bit confusing if the Archives and OPM are separate agencies or not seems from what I have read on line that the OPM is a part of the Archives and thus FOIA request should be transferred). Also I note that according to USPS regulation USPS 100.700 the rerecords are transferred to the archives from the USPS at end of calendar year that employee leaves the USPS.
Please find below further information on this issue. Please contact me for any further clarifications I am copying this to other FOIA public liaisons from the USPS and Archives. Seems I am getting a government shell game as to where responsive records may be found (from responses from both the USPS and archives I gather USPS is not properly worded instead the records would be held by the USPS for 30 years and then transferred to the archives. not sure when records are actually transferred to the National archives but since Patrick Sherrill went "Postal" in 1986 at least his records should be at the National Archives or OPM.
From USPS 100.700
Retention and Disposal
1. The Employee Medical Folder is retained by USPS until the employee is separated from USPS. On an annual basis, records of all employees separated during the prior year are transferred to the National Personnel Records Center and retained for 30 years.
