Dear Mr. Hopkins,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) and located deck logs of the USS Independence (CV-62) for January to December 1983. For access to and copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deck Logbooks of the USS Independence after 1983 are available via the Naval History and Heritage Command.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
