Assigned to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service, Craster Hall made three transatlantic voyages from 25 May 1918 to 7 January 1919 carrying a total of 28,112 tons of cargo. She transported steel billets, mail, flat cars, Army trucks, engines and airplanes to Bordeaux and Verdon; Army supplies to Quiberon, St. Nazaire, and Nantes, and 353 horses to Paulliac. After completing her vital supply duty, Craster Hall was decommissioned 5 February 1919 and transferred to the Shipping Board for return to her owner the same day.
