Q&A: Norton Air Force base

Q&A (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

Q.  I need to know where to send a FOIA request for the old Norton Air Force Base that was located in San Bernardino, California.  I'm looking for the base sign-in sheet to prove that I was there during the months of April and May of 1986.  

A.  I am skeptical that the sign-in sheet you seek has been preserved for nearly 30 years -- for the White House maybe, but not an Air Force base.  Having said that, here are a few possibilities:  (1) the Air Force Historical Research Agency; (2) the National Museum of the US Air Force; and (3) the National Archives and Records Administration.
