Multi Request Thelbert David Morgan Military Record
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: jimmie lee staley

To Whom It May Concern:

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

all Article 32 reports of investigations (ROI) and all courts-martial records of trial (ROT) concerning Thelbert David Morgan. Morgan is a candidate for mayor in Pensacola, Florida, and there is substantial public interest in releasing these records if they exist. As the Air Force Judge Advocate General has opined:
"Generally speaking, there is usually a sufficient public interest in military criminal justice proceedings to require release of some requested information.... Thus, once a request for an Article 32 hearing ROI or ROT is made pursuant to the FOIA, the Air Force will usually be required to release at least some of the requested records."

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.

Good morning Mr. Staley,

I am attaching the response that I sent out to you on 9.30.2021. Upon review and inspection, I have found that I sent the response to an email address which was saved from your previous request back in May. It appears that with each request you make through MuckRock a brand new and separate email address is generated for your request. Our office failed to update your profile with the new email address and therefore I accidentally sent my response to your previous MuckRock email address. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

As noted in the attached, the information you are seeking does not fall under the purview of the Department of Veterans affairs and would need to be sought from the Department of the Air Force Military Services (<>.

Please can you confirm that you have received this email.
