Dear Mr. Willis,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
There may have been an error on eVetRecs. We recommend contacting the National Personnel Center Records Center by their hotline at 314-801-0800. Please note that their peak hours are 10:00am and 3:00pm CST. Have the letter you received along with the DD-214 documents readily available. This will contain the case number they will require to investigate and reopen your request. It is a long number beginning with 2-2xxx….
Alternatively, you may resubmit your request by sending in a paper copy of the SF-180 form to the address associated with the period of your uncles military service listed on page three.
In addition, 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 YMS-392 for 2 June 1944 to 6 June 1946. For access to and/or copies of these logs, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful.
thank you so much for your reply and help.
I really appreciate it and I will contact the archives with his DD 214 in hand and make a request for his OMPF as well as contact the department about getting the deck logs for his ship.
This will mean a lot to my mother who has always wanted to honor her brothers service.
Thanks again so much for your help.
