To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Files on the former Army officer Joseph George Helmich (1937-2002), who was charged with spying for the Soviet Union. For proof of death, I have attached a page from the FBI's prior release on HOOKSHOT.
I request media status as I am a journalist who writes extensively about FBI files - https://www.muckrock.com/project/subjects-matter-fbi-files-10/, which have received national and international attention https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/writers-under-surveillance
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.
There are eFOIA files available for you to download.
