Dear Mr. Love,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has custody of microfilm copies of operational records relating to U.S. Air Force units. We searched the Air Force History index to the microfilm and located 7 files that pertain to the 2045th Communication Group. Please read the brief Abstract to determine which records you are interested in and click on the specific PDF icon. In the PDF listing, the IRISREF is the microfilm reel number and note the FRAME and FRAMELST numbers for the location on the reel. Since there is no IRISREF number for these files, the microfilm is still security classified and RDT2 will not be able to make the reel available to you. The original paper copy from which the film was created is still in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) and has been declassified. To obtain copies of these records, please follow the instructions on this page.
The U.S. Air Force discontinued the Morning Report (AF Form 183) on June 30, 1966. It was replaced by a machine reporting system, the Military Strength Balance Report (AFHRA Call Number K381.24, Jan-Jun 1966, IRIS Number 498836). Additionally, another report, Average Strength Data Report, Reports Control Symbol (RCS) AF-P185 was also required. Neither report has been accessioned into the custody of the National Archives. Please contact the Air Force Historical Research Agency for access to these reports.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
