The Freedom of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552 (as amended by the OPEN Government Act of 2007, Pub. L. No. 110-175, 121 Stat. 2524) gives the public the right to access any Department of the Navy records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of the nine exemptions that qualify an agency’s need to withhold records from a requester, and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them.

The mission of Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) is to collect, preserve, protect, present, and make relevant the artifacts, art, and documents that best capture the Navy's history and heritage. While adhering to the rules and regulations of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we strive to provide access to all textual and microfilm records within our holdings.
