Eten (No. 4041) was built by Blohm and Voss, Hamburg, Germany, in 1907; acquired by the Navy from the USSB on 1 May 1919; and commissioned the same day, Lieutenant Commander O. A. Lustie, USNRF, in command.

 

Assigned to the Cruiser and Transport Force, Eten sailed from New York on 29 May 1919 for St. Nazaire, France, to return United States troops from Europe. After completing two such voyages, Eten arrived at Newport News on 31 July 1919. Shifting to Norfolk 5 days later, Eten was decommissioned there on 19 August 1919, and returned to the USSB.
