Service history

After shakedown in the Gulf of Mexico, she operated in that area and along the east coast until she decommissioned at Green Cove Springs, Florida, in March 1947.

Established as a Training Ship

Reclassified as LSIL-1001 in 1949, she recommissioned in 1950. Based at Norfolk, she served as a training ship for auxiliary minesweeper crews. Scheduled for conversion to an AMCU minehunter, she was named Partridge and reclassified AMCU-36 on 7 March 1952. However, her conversion was cancelled and she was reclassified and renamed LSIL-1001 in July 1954.
