I am wondering if you might have any ideas for an elusive document I am looking for. The document is: Office of the General Counsel, DOD,
I am not permitted to contact the DOD general counsel office directly.
Hello, thank you for your question.
I have not been able to locate a copy of this document so far, but I found a reference to it in this hearing, on page 198 (you may have already seen this): https://www.google.com/books/edition/Government_Agency_Compliance_with_Cargo/Qkqlf6XmfOUC?gbpv=1
I have sent a request to the Office of General Counsel's website, asking them if they can provide this document or let me know where it can be found. I will let you know when they respond to my request.
It is possible that this document has been archived by the National Archives and Records Administration. If the Department of Defense does not provide the document, I would suggest contacting NARA to see if they can provide a copy or let you know where it is located. It would most likely be in their 400 series of records, which contains documents from the DoD Office of General Counsel. You can see a list of the files in this series, with descriptions of what is in each file, at https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/400%20Series_DoD%20General%20Counsel.pdf
I am not familiar enough with the terminology to advise you on which file you should ask for, but if you need help with reading this list, the reference people at NARA should be able to assist you. Their contact information is at https://www.archives.gov/contact
I will let you know what I find out from the DoD and hope that the other information is helpful. If this is not what you need, or if you should require any further assistance, please let me know.
