I request that a copy of the following pre-World War II documents be released to the National Archives: all pre-Pearl Harbor Japanese naval dispatches from October 1, 1940, through December 7, 1941, all worksheets pertaining thereto, and all translations thereof. In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am an individual seeking information for personal use and not for commercial use. I ask only that this information be released to the National Archives immediately as part of operation OPENDOOR. I request a waiver of all fees for this request.

In addition to your commitment to open government expressed by executive order 12958, there should be commitment to the truth. Thank you for your consideration of my request.
