If you can provide us with the following information we will be happy to conduct a records review on your behalf. Please include:
--The name of the ship involved in the incident
--A description of the incident and the name of any individuals involved
--The date or the date range in which the incident occurred not to exceed 3 months

Your initial correspondence satisfies the first bullet, however due to our staffing limitations we require a narrowed date range and a description of an incident in order to conduct a satisfactory archival records review.
