The FOIA allows the general public including foreign citizens, military and civilian personnel acting as private citizens, to request records electronically or in writing from the Federal Government. Some records are released to the public under the FOIA, and may therefore reflect deletion of some information in accordance with the FOIA's nine statutory exemptions or two law enforcement record exclusions. A consolidated list of such records is on the DoD and Air Force FOIA sites. Currently the law allows 20 working days to process a FOIA request upon receipt of the request in the FOIA office.
To learn more about the FOIA and about how to request information through the FOIA, view the DoD FOIA Handbook.
The Freedom of Information Act allows the general public, including foreign citizens, military and civilian personnel acting as private citizens, to request records electronically or in writing from the Federal Government.
The Air National Guard has centralized its FOIA program. We encourage requestors to make FOIA requests electronically through the AF FOIA website:
You may also mail, e-mail, or fax your FOIA request for ANG Records to:
Department of the Air Force Freedom of Information and Privacy Act Office

Phone: (571) 256-2515
Requests can also be made on-line at: https://www.efoia.af.mil/palMain.aspxl or by e-mail, SAF.AA.HAF.FOIA.Workflow@us.af.mil. When requesting by e-mail please be sure to indicate it is a request for the Air National Guard.
Service records on former civilian and military members are NOT maintained by the Air National Guard. They are maintained by the National Archives and Records Administrations' National Personnel Records Center. Records request instructions and contact information is listed on their website.
