Rather simple form. Who do I send it to? Do I need a name? Also, for Information Requested, I just say C file?

Wandere I went to my local VARO and put in for a copy for my C-File and I requested it just like this.

 

I John Doe hereby request a copy of all documents contained in Mr. Doe claims folder, including, but not limited to, all documents in the right flap, left flap, and center flap, and the reverse side of any documents with writing on both sides.

To my surprise it took 2 months to get and requesting my C-File like this I found 9,000 more documents that I have never seen.

Thank you for the language. So, my VARO will tell me who to address it to?
