Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) / Privacy Act (PA)
Welcome to the Mississippi National Guard's FOIA Requester Service Center and Privacy Office. This Requestor Service Center was designed to assist the public in making FOIA requests for Mississippi National Guard records to include the Air National Guard and Army National Guard. Our office is also available to assist individuals seeking records about themselves under the Privacy Act or to assist in complaints and compliance with the Privacy Act.
The FOIA, known by its legal cite as Title 5 U.S.C. § 552, along with the Department of Defense (DoD) Regulation 5400.7, governs how FOIA requests will be processed within the National Guard.
How to file a FOIA or Privacy Request
Please note that the filing of a FOIA or Privacy request is a personal matter. Military personnel and Federal Government Employees may not use government time or equipment to make such requests.
If you are seeking personal records on yourself under the Privacy Act, you must provide a signed AGO Form 26-R and Standard Form 180 indicating the specific records you are seeking. Based on the existing retrieval practice for the records you are seeking, you may be asked to provide additional information to allow us to retrieve your record. The request, containing your signature, can be mailed, faxed, or scanned and sent as an encrypted e-mail attachment.
