USN Korea Port Visit Time

Greetings,

I know this is a long shot, but I am the Quartermaster for my local VFW and am assisting someone who is wanting to join. 

The individual is a retired Marine that was attached to ships company, on three different Navy ships, but never served during a wartime.

I am trying to research days in port, for Korea, for the following ships:

USS Durham (LKA-114) Jan 78 to Dec 80

USS Dubuque (LPD-8) Jan 82 to Apr 84

USS Peleliu (LHA-5) Jan 87 to Jan 91

I have to have justification of 30 days consecutive or 60 days non-consecutive, in a year, as per VFW rules: with no qualifying medals.

The individual stated that he pulled into Korea more times than he can remember but nothing concrete on actual accumulated days in a year.

Any assistance or ideas would be appreciated.

    This is in response to your inquiry to the National Archives regarding your request for Deck Logs for multiple vessels while in Korea.

    For Deck Logs during the period of 1980;

    The National Archives holds the unclassified Deck Logs of U.S. Navy ships dated from 1979 to 1983. Starting with Deck Logs dated 1979 the U.S. Navy began transferring the paper copies of the deck logs onto microfiche. These microfiched copies replaced the paper copies and the original paper copies were destroyed by the Department of the Navy. Microfiched Deck Logs can be reproduced at a cost of $12.00 per fiche. Each monthly Deck Log typically consists of 2-3 fiche per month, although larger ships such as carriers may consist of four or more fiche per month. 

    For Deck Logs dated after 1983;

    For access to U.S. Navy deck logs dated after 1983, please contact the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC).
