Following the delivery of a cargo of flour at New York in July, Oakland made two Atlantic crossings with mixed cargos: one from Norfolk, Va. to Genoa in September and returning to Philadelphia, Pa. 21 January 1919, and a second to Palermo in March returning to New York 1 May.
Oakland decommissioned 13 May 1919 and was returned to U.S.S.B. the same day. She remained in U.S.S.B. custody until abandoned in 1933.
