      I am looking for quarter deck logs of the USS Eldorado LCC 11 during its deployment to Vietnam from August 1971 through February 1972.

          Dear Mr. Evans,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          According to the Department of the Navy records management regulations, only the deck logs of major combatant and support ships are considered permanent records and eventually accessioned into the custody of the National Archives. Other types of logs (engineer, engine room, quarter deck, sick bay or sick call, radio, and quartermaster) are deemed to be temporary records and destroyed by the Navy after initial administrative use. Medical information concerning individuals should be included in the medical file of the individual.


          We hope this is helpful.
