Dear Mr. Preece,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located General Orders, Operating Budget Files, and Other Records, 1964 - 12/31/1972 in the Records of the U.S. Continental Army Command (Record Group 546) and Operating Program Progress Reports and Operating Agency Program Files, 1970 - 1973 in the Records of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (Record Group 553) that include records of Fort Ord for 1971. For more information about these records, please contact National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at Archives2reference@nara.gov.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
I see now that I mispoke in the original query, The year I am seeking was 1970 not 1971 that I apparently typed. However, if I have properly understood Mr.Atkinson's reply the 1970 orders would still be in this record group. Thank you Mr. Atkinson.
