Hi,

I'm trying to get some more information about the following request. We received a notification that the request was rejected in full, but while we received a notification that the request received a "Full Denial Based on Exemptions." there was not information about the basis of that denial, and none was available via FOIA Online. Could you provide a copy of the full denial letter?

I left a voice mail as well, and if you'd like to discuss via phone I'm at 650-656-3417.

Thanks.

From: Judge Advocate Division, Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps
