    Seeking deck logs of USS Vicksburg (VL-86)

    Brendan Ard Newbie

      My grandfather, who turns 101 this year, was a Deck Officer aboard the U.S.S Vicksburg VL-86 in the Navy during WWII. We recently reread his personal diaries and was hoping to find out what information there is available regarding the Vicksburg and its campaign during WWII. There are many references in his notes about the bombardment of Iwo Jima & Okinawa to being in Tokyo Bay the day Japan surrendered. I have his discharge papers from the Navy as well as a few photographs. Any insight or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you
