Here is the letter format I used:
"US Army Human Resources Command
ATTN: Public Affairs Office (FOIA)
200 Stovall Street
Alexandria, Virginia 22332-0404
IAW with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), I should like to request a copy of the Individual Deceased Personnel File for my uncle [name], who died in World War II.
Below is his personal information:
- RANK: PFC
- UNIT: B Company, 63rd Infantry Regiment, 6th Infantry Division
- DATE OF DEATH:
"I realize that this will take some time, and I will be patient.Naturally, I am prepared to pay any costs necessary for the production and mailing of the file."
Both IDPFs were provided without cost to me.As Andrea
said, the content, i.e., description of wounds, description
of body if disinterred for repatriation, can be very graphic.
