Dear Mr. Morisy,

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, as stated below.

Please note that your request was misdirected to this office for processing. As you may not be aware, there is no central FOIA processing point for the entire Department of Defense (DoD). Within DoD, each Military Service and DoD component agency is responsible for processing FOIA requests for records related to their own organization. This office, for example, only processes FOIA requests for records related to the Office of Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff. I am not aware of a connection between the requested information and this office.

The information you are seeking would likely be maintained by the U.S. Southern Command, which operates its own FOIA office. You may request these records, if they exist, directly from that office. Contact information for the U.S. Southern Command FOIA Office is:

U.S. Southern Command
9301 NW 33rd St
Doral, FL 33172
POC: Mr. Marco T. Villalobos

This action closes your request in this office.
