Assigned duty in the 5th Naval District, John G. Olsen steamed from New York to Norfolk, arriving 23 April via the inland route. There she took up duty as a tug and general purpose harbor ship in Hampton Roads for Naval Overseas Transportation Service, a vital organization in the transport of men and material to France. After the Armistice, she served at Indian Head, Md., before being returned to her owners 28 August 1919.
