Ardent was fitted out as a minesweeper and assigned to the Mining Force, 2d Naval District. She carried out minesweeping duties and tended nets in the Newport, R. I., and Block Island sections throughout the remainder of World War I. In 1919, the ship was stationed at the submarine base in New London, Conn, where she became involved in torpedo work and worked at that task until early 1921, when she was decommissioned. The ship was sold on 16 May 1921 to Mr. Wigo Rasmussen, Brooklyn, N. Y.
