Subject:  Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) Request


Greetings Commanding Officer:


This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.  I request that a true and correct copy of the following document be provided to Me, without delay:


1.        OPM Standard Form 61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS executed by all U.S. Department of Defense (“DOD”) personnel formally participating in any manner whatsoever in the Court Martial, e.g. arraignment, of LTC Terry Lakin, including but not limited to the designated judge, prosecutor(s), defense counsel(s) and supporting staff e.g. court reporter(s).  See 5 U.S.C. §§ 2906, 3331, and Paperwork Reduction Act.


I request a waiver of all fees for this request.


Disclosure of the requested information to Me is in the public interest, because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of the federal government, and is not primarily in My commercial interest.  See also 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(B) [such statutes must be strictly construed].


If you are not the correct person to whom this FOIA request should be directed, please forward it without delay to the correct person(s).


Thank you for your consideration of this FOIA request.



Sincerely yours,


/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
