USSOCOM does not maintain records of individuals not currently assigned or attached to the Command. Additionally, in accordance with Department of Defense guidelines, USSOCOM does not conduct intelligence activities on U.S. Citizens or Foreign Nationals; therefore, we would not create or maintain any such records pertaining to you.
