Dear Mr. Burch,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
As we indicated in our previous reply, the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships and Stations, 1941 - 1983 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) include the deck logs of the USS Kaskaskia (AO-27) for December 1941 through August 1947. We checked the records and verified that they include logs for January through March 1942 and April through June, 1945. These records are not available online.
In regards to war diaries, we searched World War II War Diaries, Other Operational Records and Histories, ca. 1/1/1942 - ca. 6/1/1946 in the Records of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (Record Group 38) and located USS KASKASKIA - Form rep of A A action off Okinawa JIma, Ryukyu Islands, 5/12/45 and USS KASKASKIA - War Diary, 6/1-30/45 which fall within the specified months. These records have been digitized and may be viewed online.
We also searched World War II War Diaries, 12/7/1941 - 12/31/1945 in Record Group 38 and located war diaries of the USS Kaskaskia for the months of April through June, 1945. These have not been digitized and consist of the original war diaries in paper form. We were unable to locate any war diaries for March 1942 or any prior dates.
