Well, after requesting my uncle's (Joseph Tobias, 81st Infantry, 323rd Regiment, KIA Oct. 26, 1944) back in May, I received a "fire phone call", as opposed to a letter, in early September, explaining that my uncle's records had been damaged in the '73 fire, and I had to send in $60 to get copies of what they had. It turns out he was in Company K, so I guess my land mine recollection doesn't hold up. Another relative of mine always though Joe had died in Europe, so I don't feel too bad about my poor memory. The information also included his Purple Heart award letter sent to my grandparents 2 months after he died, Official Statement of Military Service and Death, Report of Death, Battle Casualty Report, Inventory of Effects, Record of Award of Infantryman Badge, Immunization Records, and pages and pages and pages about how he was hospitalized with a boil on his neck when he was still in California! In addition, the letter from the National Personnel Records Center states " This record contained social security numbers and/or- sensitive personal information which couldbe injurious to the veteran, the veteran's family, or third party mentioned in the record. We haveredacted or withheld that information in accordance with the personal privacy exemption of theFreedom of Information Act (FOIA), U.S.C.552 (b) (6).If you consider this an adverse response under the FOIA, you may appeal by writing, within 35days of receipt of this letter, to the Deputy Archivist (ND), National Archives at College Park,8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, Maryland 20740-6001, and explain why you think ourresponse does not meet the requirements outlined in the FOIA. So now I'm curious about what they could possibly have redacted, and will write an appeal.
