Acoma (SP-1228), a section patrol motor boat, was built in 1917 by the Gas Engine & Power Co. and Charles L. Seabury Co., Morris Heights, N.Y.; acquired by the Navy on a free lease from Theodore D. Partridge of New York City on 25 September 1917; and commissioned on 18 October 1917, Chief Boatswain's Mate Clarence E. Sterrett in command.

 

Acoma was assigned to the 2d Naval District throughout her naval career. After patrolling in the vicinity of Newport, R.I., she was transferred in November 1917 to the area of New Bedford, Conn. The boat served there through the end of World War I. Following the armistice, Acoma was returned to her owner on 25 November 1918.
