From: Benjamin Oreskes

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the Army’s Personnel Files (OMPF) for a former servicemember named Geoff Garland--(DOB November 13,1977) He served in the Army from November 1998 to August 2001. He passed away on November 11, 2018.

Here is a news article about his death.

Please be sure to review and release any segregable information, even if certain documents or portions of documents are withheld.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not a next of kin of this servicemember, and thus do not know Mr. Garland Social Security Number. Because of this, I am ONLY requesting records releasable under the Freedom of Information Act. Please process my request for this servicemember's OMPF and other records under the Freedom of Information Act’s relevant provisions. I am not seeking any records that would be releasable under the Privacy Act.

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.
