To Whom It May Concern:
THIS IS A FOIA REQUEST
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request copies of the following records:
The internal standard operating procedures (SOP) for the day-to-day management and tactical operations of headquarters USSTRATCOM PA website and social media products (referenced on p.7 of Annex D of the 2018 United States Strategic Command Communication Strategy); "the weekly social media engagement schedule/matrix...that accounts for routinely scheduled public posts...and flexibility for as-needed posts..." on headquarters USSTRATCOM PA website and social media products (referenced on p. 3 of Annex D of the 2018 United States Strategic Command Communication Strategy); and current copies of the "long-range 'Big Rocks' calendar and the command’s Master Activities Planner" (referenced on p.6 of Annex D of the 2018 United States Strategic Command Communication Strategy).
As the FOIA requires, please release all reasonably segregable nonexempt portions of documents. If you withhold information or records then please identify the exemption through which you do so and advise me of my options for appeal under the law.
FEES AND FEE STATUS
I am a PhD student at the University of New Mexico and the information requested is for academic and public education purposes, including my PhD dissertation project, and not primarily for commercial use. Furthermore, I will make responsive records available to the public via my academic publications and presentations; on social media (I have over 13,000 Twitter followers) and my blog; and through the News Site MuckRock.com. Please note that you can access my UNM student profile page at the following url: https://anthropology.unm.edu/people/grad-students/profile/martin-pfeiffer.html.
Therefore, as per Sack v. DOD (2016) I qualify for educational institution fee status and ask that you process my request accordingly. In your response please confirm that you will be processing my request under the educational institution fee status.
If fees are assessed then I agree to pay fees up to $30 without additional notice. In the event that there are fees exceeding $30 then please inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.
RECORDS AND COMMUNICATIONS
I hereby request that all records generated by this request be delivered in electronic format via email or, if that is not possible, on CD-ROM if available.
Please do not hesitate to contact me (preferably via email) with any questions or information. You may, and I request that you do so if convenient, engage in rolling release of responsive documents.
I look forward to receiving your response within the twenty day statutory period. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and time in this matter.
I’m acknowledging your request and have assigned it tracking number 19-103. Please refer to this number when communicating with me about your request.
I forwarded your request to our Public Affairs office on 19 February for cursory review to estimate the amount of time it might take to process, and to determine if your request is perfected. I’ll get back to you soon.
Thank you for submitting your request.

Hi Mr. Cooper,
Thank you for message and I look forward to your update. I appreciate your consideration and effort on this and my other requests.
You’re most welcome sir. I followed up with OSD/JS FOIA on Tuesday about your tweet request. The action officer informed me it’s nearing completion. Hopefully it’ll be headed back my way soon.
Hi Mr. Cooper,
Double awesome, thank you for doing that and I appreciate the status update.
I hope that you have/had (depending on when you see this) a good weekend.
