Dear Mr. Meadors:

This is in response to your September 18, 2017, Freedom of Information Act
request (RD54382) related to the Navy Deck Logs of the USS *Liberty*
(AGTR-5) for the dates of February 2 – 7, 1965. We have located the records
relevant to your request and attached is a complimentary scan as a pdf of
the requested dates.

Again, most Deck Logs are declassified and available to the public. Please
write to our section directly archives2reference@nara.gov as writing to the
FOIA office will cause a delay in our response.

If you can provide us with a description of your researched incident(s) and
the name of any individuals involved, we can conduct a records review
search on your behalf and provide only the copies related to your research.

Otherwise, we can provide reproductions (copies) of the above documents.
Our current fee for electrostatic (paper) or digital (on CD-R) copies is
$0.80 per page with a minimum mail order fee of $20.00. Allow 30-60 days
for delivery. Please do not send a check or money order until you have
received a price quote.

We do not consider this response a denial under the Freedom of Information
Act (FOIA). Please see the attached page on appeal and dispute resolution
options and refer to our case number: RD54382.

Sincerely,

PAUL A. COGAN
