We're not quite sure what you're looking for. Do you mean deck logs?

Do you mean the USS Leviathan (SP-1326)? If so, was originally called the SS Vaterland (a German ship) and renamed when it was seized by the US. It was used as a troop ship during WWI by the US Navy. NARA's Textual Reference Archives I Branch has the deck logs from July 25, 1917 through October 29, 1919 when it was decommissioned and turned over to the US Shipping Board to be reconditioned. Please contact them at email@example.com. A published history is available online at https://archive.org/details/historyofusslevi01levi and a shorter history at https://www.history.navy.mil/research/histories/ship-histories/danfs/l/leviathan-sp-1326.html. If the crew was designated as part of the US Navy, there should be personnel files at the National Archives in St. Louis. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi; Thank you for your reply.I will try the sites you have listed and
hopefully I will have better results with these sites. I have applied
four time to get my medals from WW2 and the VFW have applied twice and I
still have not heard any response from them. I spent 2years 9months and
10 days in WW2 and I also had about 51/2 yrs in Navy reserve performing
acdutra each year.
For the reserve service I also earned the National Defense ribbon. At
89 I would really like to get my medals before I cash in.Again thank you
for your kind response> Alvie N Leeper
This is the second message that I have sent to Saint Louis.archives@
NARA.gov. If I am unable to raise a response is there any other avenue
to this office? How can I get my medals if they do not respond?Thank you
Hello: I did send both of the E-mails to (email@example.com
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.) and I wrote out Saint Louis from the
times in the past years that I have tried to access their office.These 2
E-mails represent #7 and 8 of my efforts to contact them. I will be 90
years old on April 03 2017 and I would like to get the medals before I
die. Thank you Alvie
