Mr. Meadors,

We have received your request for the below listed information and
assigned it case number 12-F-0852.

Please note that your request has been misdirected to this office for
processing. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), who
operates their own FOIA office, would have cognizance over the records
you requested. You may request these records if they exist, directly
from NARA at the following address:


The National Archives at College Park
Records Declassification Division, Room 6350

College Park, MD 20740-6001

Please note that records are routinely reviewed after 25 years and then
accessioned to NARA. Therefore, any future record of interest older than
25 years, should be requested thru the NARA FOIA Office. This action
closes your request in this office.

Thank you,
Brandon J. Gaylord
