    Seeking Log Book of USS Buck DD-761

    Kent Varnum Newbie

      I am looking for logbooks or deck logs or any documentation that shows what USS Buck was doing during 6 - 12 July 1947.  This is associated with a genealogy I am working on for my Father.

          Dear Mr. Varnum,


          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 log of the USS Buck (DD-761) for July 1947. For more information, please contact the 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 also searched the website of the Naval History and Heritage Command and located an article about Buck III (DD-761) that states that it was serving in the Pacific Fleet in 1947.


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