From: Michael Morisy

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the Army's Personnel Files on Edward Snowden, including performance reports, job assessments, training received, discharge papers, and other records.

The public interest in Edward Snowden should favors disclosure of many of these records; particularly in relation to his performance, duties performed, access to sensitive materials, and discharge; and we believe that many of these records can be released without harming any active and ongoing investigations.

Please be sure to review and release and segregable information, even if certain documents or portions of documents are withheld.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Michael Morisy
