Withholding of Information that Personally Identifies DoD Personnel
DoD Memo - Publish Date: 09/01/05
Organizations outside the Federal Government often approach Department of Defense personnel to obtain updated contact information for their publications, which are then made available to the public. The information sought usually includes names, job titles, organizations, phone numbers and room numbers. The DoD director of Administration and Management issued a policy memo Nov. 9, 2001, that provided greater protection of DoD personnel in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The memo required information that personally identifies DoD personnel to be more carefully scrutinized and limited. This memo reinforces the original memo.
