The Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) FOIA Office is responsible for processing requests for AFSOC records under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. The AFSOC FOIA Office also processes FOIA requests/consults as a combatant command under the United States Special Operations Command. Written requests may be received by postal service, facsimile at (850) 884-2360, or submitted electronically online to our Requester Service Centers (RSC). Requests received by facsimile or electronically must have a mailing address included since it may not be practical to provide a substantive response electronically.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) generally provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of them) are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions, or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions. You can find a consolidated list of exemptions and exclusions at Secretary of Defense FOIA and at Air Force FOIA.
By facsimile at (850) 884-2360, or submitted electronically online to our Requester Service Centers (RSC). Requests received by facsimile or electronically must have a mailing address included since it may not be practical to provide a substantive response electronically.
Written requests may be sent by postal service to:
HQ AFSOC/A6XP (FOIA Office)
100 Bartley Street, Suite 137E

Please mark your request and envelope "FOIA" and indicate a willingness to pay fees associated with the processing of your request or in the alternative, why a waiver of fees may be appropriate. Currently the law allows 20 working days to process a FOIA request upon receipt of the request in the responsive FOIA office.
