Good morning,

We are doing some internal records management and came across your attached
request.

Given the amount of time that has passed since you originally submitted this
request, I am writing to ask if you are still interested in receiving this
information or if you would like to withdraw this request. Additionally,
I've looked through
your request and the information that you are requesting is likely to be
withheld in its
entirety for matters concerning national security. A code name may have
been rejected
in the past, but it could potentially be used in the future.

If we have not heard back from you by COB Wednesday, December 26, 2018, we
will assume that you are no longer interested.

Thank you,
Megan
