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 Private First Class Robert H. Thomas (August 13, 1926 - February 25, 1985) including performance reports, job assessments, disciplinary records, training received, discharge papers, and any other releasable records.

Army Enlistment record: http://1.usa.gov/1EppHwD

California Death record: http://bit.ly/1Am9sQe

The public interest in Mr. Thomas should favor disclosure of these records since he went on to become a public figure and held a series of prominent positions in the Church of Scientology (President, Executive Director and US Deputy Guardian) during the 1960-70s. In his earliest national-level role as President, he leveraged his brief stint in the Army at the end of WWII when lobbying for the draft exemption and discharge of active duty service men for ministerial duties on several occasions. E.g.: http://bit.ly/17UNv1n

Additionally, the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, and is not being made 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,

Ms. R. M. Seibert
