Photographed from USS Holland (ARG 18) with a Submarine Chaser (PC) alongsidethe Boston Navy Yard two days after commissioning. The stern does not show the large sponsons aft added to her sister in 1944 and she probably did not receive this alteration. Her foremast has been moved to a position behind the bridge, probably during her conversion in mid-1945 to an auxiliary minelayer (ACM) and minesweeper support ship

|98k||Probably at San Francisco shortly after her return there in April 1946. Note the foremast in its new position behind the bridge, the new 40 mm quad mount forward, and the extreme weathering to the hull paint on the bow.
