Good morning Mr. Caputi,
This acknowledges receipt of your FOIA request and also informs you of our plan to fulfill it.  Research on our end shows that the period of your request should be September 1, to December 23, 2004, and that I MEF at MCB Camp Pendleton would have the most potential to possess records responsive to your request; HQMC will be transferring your request to that office and the request number will not change.  Additionally, we believe that the United States Marine Corps History Division (a unit of the Training and Education Command [TECOM]) may also hold responsive records and we have, therefore, partially referred the request to them under file number DON-USMC-2020-000388.
Please be aware that your FOIA request is much too broad as written and is currently 'unperfected'; I MEF and TECOM will likely contact you in order to narrow and 'perfect' it.  For information regarding your requests, you may contact Ms. Elisa Reyes at I Marine Expeditionary Force ATTN: SJA, Box 555300, Camp Pendleton, CA 92055-5300, by e-mail to: IMEF_FOIA@usmc.mil, or via telephone at (760) 763-6946.  For the TECOM portion of your request, please contact Ms. Maria Gonzalez at Commander, MCINCR-MCB Quantico ATTN: (B 013/Suite 204 - FOIA), 3250 Catlin Avenue, Quantico, VA 22134-5001, by telephone at (703) 784-2153, or via e-mail to: (mailto:IMEF_FOIA@usmc.mil) maria.e.gonzalez2@usmc.mil.
