The LST 1162 is listed at the Naval History and Heritage Command. The history can be used to pin point specific
time frames and operations in a request for the Action Report or Deck Log. Deck Logs may have minimal operational
information, but they may contain navigational coordinates. The Wahkiakum was not listed in the available Deck Logs in the online catalog. A specific mission After Action Report may have a more detailed account of the ships deployment.

Dear Mr. Gooch,
The Deck Log digitization project is an ongoing project, however, we are unable to provide specific details, estimations, or time tables on when any particular ship's logs will be made available on our online catalog. Logs are made available on a month by month basis, however, these months may not be consecutive or complete a ships duration of service. If a month for a particular ship is not posted we cannot make any determination of when that month will be made digitally available.
Access to the deck logs for the USS Wahkiakum LST-1162 are available at our College Park, Maryland location. You are always welcome to visit our location and view the original deck logs in person. For more information about visiting our location, please consult our web site at http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/, http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/self-service-copying.html, and http://www.archives.gov/research/start/getting-started.pdf. You may also request a price quote for copies of the deck logs. Our current fee for paper or digital copies is $0.80 per page with a minimum mail order fee of $20.00. If you would like to request a reproduction order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, your mailing/postal/billing/shipping address, the name of the ship, and the dates you are requesting copies of. You are under no obligation to purchase the copies.
If you are interested in locating a specific event or if you have dates of interest for the ship, we can perform a review of the deck log and respond with a positive or negative. Is there a specific event or date/dates you are interested in for the USS Wahkiakum LST-1162?
