          Dear Mr. Strzelecki,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located records of the Naval Base in Philadelphia but none of them pertain to the Naval Boot Camp held there in the 1960s. According to the Navy Filing Manual, very few records about training are considered permanent. It is possible that general information about training at the Naval Base in the Records of Naval Districts and Shore Establishments (Record Group 181) that are in the custody of the National Archives at Philadelphia (RE-PA). Please contact RE-PA via email at philadelphia.archives@nara.gov.

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
