Dear Mr. Bourque,
Thank you for submitting your question to History Hub.
As our deck log digitization project continues, please return periodically to the National Archives Catalog to check on our progress concerning the USS Bradley (FF-1041). For access to or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you correctly surmised, CIC logs are not considered permanent records by the Navy and NARA does not accession them. In fact, the only permanent ship’s logs are the smooth deck logs, so all of those logs maintained by the various shipboard departments are ultimately destroyed.
We hope this information is helpful.
