Archives Branch

Op archives

The naval archives will operate under restricted access due to the ongoing remediation efforts in storage facilities and naval history holdings.  Access to and support from naval archives will remain limited to official government inquiries and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests only.

The Archives of the Naval History and Heritage Command is the main repository of the U.S. Navy's operational history. It maintains a select group of operational records, histories/operational reports of naval commands, manuscripts, oral histories, biographies, and personal papers dealing with the twentieth and twenty-first century Navy, especially after 1945.
