    Seeking orders for packaging location of atomic bombs

    Edward Galvin Wayfarer

      In 1945 the atomic bombs were packaged for delivery to Tinian Island in Building 627-A at Mare Island Navy Base in California.  It appears that my late father was one of the sailors who worked on this secret project in 627-A.  I have found quite a bit of information online, but would like to find the orders designating 627-A as the location for the packaging and the orders assigning the team to do the work.  There must have been classified paperwork. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
