    Can I get a copy of ships log for USS Repose for World War 2?


      I am trying to map my fathers journey during WW 2 on the USS Repose. Thought the ships log would be helpfu.

          The Naval History and Heritage Command has pictures and the history of the USS Repose. Using the history, it would

          be beneficial to focus on the locations and mission locations as to focus the Log time frames. You could also request the potential Action Reports during WW2 and while in China.
