Her keel was laid down as Rochester on 3 February 1943 by the Bethlehem Steel Company in Quincy, Massachusetts. She was launched on 16 September 1944 sponsored by Mrs. John J. McDonough, and commissioned on 17 February 1945, Captain Ernest H. von Heimburg in command. She was struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 31 July 1978, and was sold for scrapping in January 1980.

Was berthed alongside the cruiser HMS CEYLON in Hong Kong in 1959, the gang way USM on guard duty was always an attraction when doing rifle drill ,was friendly with one or two of the engine room staff who invited me to a meal which was superior to our menu, she saw duty during the Vietnam war.
