To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of any e-mails sent to, from, or within the U.S. Army Recruiting Command G7/9 Marketing, Education and Outreach Directorate that mention radio host Rush Limbaugh. A keyword search for e-mails containing either "Limbaugh" or "Rush" and "radio" would be acceptable.

Please limit this search to e-mails created between February 29th and the date this request is received, and please limit this search to individuals who oversee or manage purchasing of radio advertising and their management teams.

I also request any memos, orders or other written guidance created within the Marketing, Education and Outreach Directorate regarding Rush Limbaugh or controversial radio shows.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not 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,

Michael Morisy

Mr. Morisy:

This e-mail acknowledges receipt of your recent Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) request dated, May 31, 2013, for a copy of any e-mails sent to, from
or within the U.S. Army Recruiting Command G7/9 Marketing, Education and
Outreach Directorate that mention radio host Rush Limbaugh. Your request,
which was sent to the U.S. Army Recruiting Command, has been received in the
U.S. Army Human Resources Command, FOIA Office, which processes FOIA
requests for the Recruiting Command, and is being processed under the
provisions of the FOIA. We assigned FA 13-4516 to your request for tracking
and administrative purposes. Please reference this tracking number when
inquiring about your request.

In order to conduct a reasonable search for records you are seeking, please
be more specific as to the nature of the e-mails mentioning "Rush Limbaugh"
you are requesting. There could be several hundred, if not thousands, of
e-mails that mention Mr. Limbaugh in news articles, which have been
forwarded as an attachment to an email, because of his repeated presence in
the news. These news articles would be in the public domain and may not
necessarily be subject to the FOIA. Is there a specific topic the e-mails
should pertain to or reference? Are you not looking for news articles that
have been attached to emails? Clarifying these types of specifics will aid
in our search efforts and hopefully provide you with records that are
responsive to your actual needs. Please respond directly to my e-mail with
any clarifications you may have.
