Assigned to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service, Edward Luckenbach sailed from New York 18 September 1918 with Army cargo for Marseilles. Returning to New York 22 November she was converted by the Army to a troop transport. On 18 December she was transferred to the Cruiser and Transport Force, Newport News Division. She made three voyages from New York and Newport News with cargo for St. Nazaire returning with patients, convalescents, troops, and casuals to the United States. She was unable to continue her fourth voyage from Hampton Roads because of engine trouble. She was towed to Boston, decommissioned 6 August 1919 and delivered to the Shipping Board the same day for return to her owner.
