Mr. Sturdivant,

I received your name from Jeff Rosenfeld, the USSS HCA, as the cognizant POC
for RASCO.  The USSS received a letter (Kevin Boshears was cc'd) dated 19
Jul 07 from RASCO.  I tried calling you on 205-0129, but no voicemail was
active.  I do not know if this is a correct number for you.  Please call or
email so we can discuss the letter, and the USSS' position on the subject.

If you are not a correct POC, please accept my apologies for the
inconvenience and kindly direct me to the correct individual.
