From: Joseph Durso

Greetings,

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I request the following record, which is suspect is held by DARPA:

The Journal of Missile Defense Research, Volume 5, Number 3.

The record is probably dated ~ 1966-1968. I note that in request #20-F-0461, you released the cumulative index of the journal, which appears to itself be a piece of Volume 5 of the journal. This leads me to suspect the agency possess the remainder.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

I am willing to pay all applicable fees, however in the event that there are fees will exceed $50 I would appreciate if if you could 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 help. I understand the request may be delayed by the ongoing public health situation. I hope you and everyone there are staying well.

Sincerely,

Joseph Durso

From: Office Of Secretary Of Defense And Joint Chief Of Staff (OSD/JS)

Dear Mr. Durso:

This email is in reply to your Freedom of Information Act request of April
2, 2020, for copies of the *Journal of Missile Defense Research*,
specifically Volume 5, numbers 2, 3, and 4. It was forwarded to us by the
Freedom of Information Division of the Department of Defense. Your request
was received in this office yesterday. It has the tracking number 20-32871.

substantive response to requests that require us to consult the records at
this time. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your
