Dear Mr. Rodriguez,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships and Stations, 1941 - 1983 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) that include the deck logs of the USS Cayuga (LST-1186) from January 1978 through December 1982. For access to and/or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post-Vietnam conflict casualty information is available from the Defense Manpower Data Center, 1600 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 400, Arlington, VA 22209. You can also contact the National Military Personnel Record Center to request Death Notification Files from the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24).
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
