    Current Ship's Log Availability from 1979


      When will U.S. Navy ship's logs from 1979 or later become available for review by service veterans?

          Dear Mr. Strandquist,


          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 includes the deck logs of commissioned U.S. Navy ships from 1979 through 1983. For access to and/or copies of these logs, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.


          For access to U.S. Navy deck logs dated after 1983, please write to the Ships Deck Logs Section, Naval History & Heritage Command, 805 Kidder Breese Street, SE, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC 20374-5060 or via email at archives@navy.mil.


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
