She was enroute to a northern New Guinea P.T. Base, towing the barge full of gas, when she was ordered to return to Hollandia. The barge was tied along side until a tug took the barge in tow to complete the gasoline delivery to the P.T. Base. Teak left in a convoy for Leyte, October 18, 1944. In the far distance beyond Teak is USS Stack (DD-406).||Photo contributed by John Chiquoine and Dave Schroeder. Description contributed by John Chiquoine and Milt Meehan RDM2/c USS Teak|
