As predicted they blew the request off to the Air Force, who will
respond with a no records found answer. The appeals will be
equally blown off/no records found answer.  So if you want
anything, you are going to have to sue, which will be a long
involved process.

Assuming that Carso is not a story teller (of which I have grave
doubts) and assuming that the records still existed, you might
try to request a search of Army R&D board records during Carso'
time their. A request that large would involve probably 1-10
grand in search fees due to the probably large amount of material
the people would have to go through.

Even then you may not find those particular records.

Naturally if no records are found the comment will be made:
"Well everybody knows that MJ-12 or some similar group vacumed
the files before they were turned over to the archives...blah
blah.
