I'm routing this request to you for processing. Let me know if it turns

Hi Ramona,

I accidentally sent this request to Annette as I thought it was for Minute
Man NHP. So I'm now re-routing to you. The tracking number for this one
is NPS-2016-00043 and I'm working on getting it changed in the tracking
system, so that it will show in up MWR's processing queue.

As usual, I've cc'd the requester so they know who will be handling their
request.

Thanks,

C.

Dear Mr. Lasser:

Reference: Minuteman Missile National Historic Site

Subject: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request NPS-2016-00043

This letter is to acknowledge receipt of your Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) request dated October 8, 2015 in which you requested “All training
materials provided to Minuteman Missile National Historic Site rangers,
including but not limited to new staff training materials, orientation
packets, and guided tour talking points.”

It is the policy of the National Park Service (NPS) to: (1) make records of
the NPS available to the public to the greatest extent possible in keeping
with the spirit of FOIA; (2) make available documents requested under the
FOIA at the earliest possible date while, at the same time, protecting the
rights of the individuals involved and the administrative processes
surrounding such rights; (3) withhold documents falling within one of the
FOIA exemptions only if disclosure is prohibited by statute or Executive
Order, or in those cases where the agency reasonably foresees that
disclosure would be harmful to an interest protected by exemption or other
sound grounds exist for invoking an exemption.

Your request is being processed under the provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act (5 U.S.C. §552); United States Department of the Interior
(43 CFR Part 2), and the Privacy Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-579).
Additional FOIA and Privacy Act guidance may also be found through the
Department of Interior's Web site, http://www.doi.gov/FOIA.

I apologize for the delay in getting this information to you. I am
currently working with the park on processing your request, and hope to
have a response to you shortly. Please note, because we were not able to
process your request within the required 20-workday period, you have the
right to appeal. You may file an appeal by writing to:

Freedom of Information Act Appeals Officer

Office of the Solicitor

U.S. Department of the Interior

1849 C Street, NW.

MS-6556-MIB

Washington, D.C. 20240

Email: foia.appeals@sol.doi.gov

Your failure-to-timely-respond appeal may be filed anytime between now and
the date we issue our final response. The appeal should be marked, both on
the envelope and the face of the appeal letter, with the legend “FREEDOM OF
INFORMATION APPEAL.” Your appeal should be accompanied by a copy of your
original request and copies of all correspondence between yourself and the
National Park Service related to this request, along with any information
you have which leads you to believe our response to be in error. Note, any
appeal received after 5 p.m. EST will be considered to have been received
on the next business day.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions or
concerns. I can be reached at the address above or by phone at

Good afternoon, Mr. Lasser,

I just tried sending you the final response to the subject FOIA. It came
back undeliverable.

I am going to try and send separate emails for each attachment--a couple of
them are large. Hopefully that will work.

Here is the first attachment (it is the largest one).

Thank you,

This letter is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
request dated October 8, 2015. You requested the following information:

“All training materials provided to Minuteman Missile National Historic Site
rangers, including but not limited to new staff training materials,

Upon further review, your request is granted in full. We are releasing and
have attached 4 files in their entirety, containing 283 pages of responsive
material.

Should you consider there is a procedural deficiency in this FULL GRANT
response, you have the right, under 43 CFR 2.57(a)(5), to file an appeal.
You may file an appeal by writing to:

Your appeal must be received no later than 30 workdays after the date of
this final response. The appeal should be marked, both on the envelope and
the face of the letter, with the legend “FREEDOM OF INFORMATION APPEAL.”
Your appeal should be accompanied by a copy of your original request and

Additionally, because the NPS creates and maintains law enforcement

request. Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement
and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA. See 5
U.S.C. 552(c) (2006 & Supp. IV 2010). This response is limited to those
records that are subject to the requirements of the FOIA. This is a
standard notification that we are required to give all our requesters and
should not be taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not,
exist.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions or
concerns. I can be reached at the address above or by phone at
402-661-1532. I can also be reached via email at ramona_turner@nps.gov.
