LST-765 was laid down on 8 July 1944 at Ambridge, Pa., by the American Bridge Co.; launched on 26 August 1944; sponsored by Mrs. W. P. Douglas; and commissioned on 18 September 1944.

 

During World War II, LST-765 was assigned to the Asiatic-Pacific theater and participated in the assault and occupation of Okinawa Gunto in May and June 1945. Following the war, LST-765 performed occupation duty in the Far East until early December 1945. She returned to the United States and was decommissioned on 29 April 1946 and struck from the Navy list on 3 July that same year. On 16 December 1947, the ship was sold to B. T. Jones for scrapping.

 

LST-765 earned one battle star for World War II service.
