Design & Service:

These mass-produced anti-submarine vessels were designed for quick construction.  The first of 100 ordered was begun in May 1918. Only 80 were completed, with many assuming minor roles after the Armistice.  Because they were of flat steel plate hull construction, their seakeeping characteristics were not optimal.  When transferred to the USCG these vessels were named for men lost on USCGC Tampa in World War I.

She was assigned to the USCG Depot at Curtis Bay, MD.
