    Looking for ship logs of USS Lorain County (LST-1177)


      I am looking for ship logs on a Naval ship, USS Lorain County (LST-1177), around 1969-1971. It's not on the archives list. Are they classified?

          Dear Mr. Schultz,


          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 log of the USS Lorain County (LST-1177) for January 1969 through December 1971. For copies of these logs, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov. There may be restrictions on access to the 1971 logs for reasons of personal privacy.

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.
