          Hello Elliot,


          Did you submit this request to the National Archives at both St Louis and College Park, Maryland? I would start there,

            The RG 338, UD-UP 12 ,  27500115 is Unrestricted, therefore it does note need a FOIA or MDR Mandatory Declassification Review. The records consist of 1 linear foot, which is a lot of records at 80 cents a page.

            Is there a specific group of records within the UD-UP 12 entry as to focus the search and minimize cost?

            NARA states that records can be photographed in their research rooms using your own phone or camera,

            at no cost. In some cases the UD-UP 12 entry may have Folders, which can minimize the cost of ordering the

            entire linear foot of records. They key is to request specific strategic documents which would provide the most

            descriptive information toward the event. Please ask the Textual Records branch if the UD-UP 12 is broken down

            with a list of key records and folders in this entry. You may be able to minimize the order to 50 pages out of the

            1 linear foot. I am not a NARA staff member, just trying to help with your search and request.
