Est. Completion None


From: Matthew Gault

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting the Official Military Personnel File and Official Personnel File of former military service member Brandon Troy Robbins.

Branch: Army

Private with the 215th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division. Fort hood.

Robbins was prosecuted for human trafficking in 2015.

I know that service members’ records are, to an extent, protected by privacy laws but I am seeking an exception on the grounds that the service member was convicted of human trafficking.

I believe it’s in the public interest to disclose the available facts about Robbin's service record.

Information I am seeking from the OMF and OMPF includes, but is not limited to full name, past and present positions, past and present titles, past and present grades, past and present job locations, dates of service, final duty status, final rank, assignments and geographical locations, source of commission, military education level, promotion sequence number, awards and decorations, transcripts of courts-martial trails, place of entrance and separation.

I am a member of the media working on a story for VICE. I have a proven track record of using FOIA information to break stories.

As such, I am requesting a media waiver on all fees.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, 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.
