Dear SG SecFin-Sec Gp Mailbox (MULTIUSER),
Thank you for your reply.
I tried to amend my request into smaller questions that focused on specific aspects of my service and hoped that this would at least in part be investigated. I understand that if my request gets aggregated this takes it beyond the scope but on its own, they do not. I would like to know if any of my requests would fall within the scope of your limitations and could be worked on? can you reply with the specific question that I have requested, that would be accepted and I can work from that information and possibly return at a later date with follow up requests.
I would like the opportunity to find out this information regarding Lariam as it does not show on my medical records and I need to know what Anti-malaria medication I was given. I know the guidelines state Lariam should not have been used but unfortunately, I know this not to be the case on thousands of soldiers to date.
please can you assist me in figuring out what question within my list would be admissible?

Yours sincerely,

Grant Thomson
