Dear Mr. Meadors,

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, as stated below. Your request was received in this office and assigned FOIA case number 12-F-1040.

Please note that this office only processes FOIA requests for records related to the Office of Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff (OSD/JS). There is no central FOIA processing point for the entire Department of Defense. Each component/service is responsible for processing FOIA requests that relate to their organization. You have not provided enough information to determine a connection between the records you seek and the OSD/JS. Thus, your request is not reasonably described to support processing.

This action closes your request in this office.
