LST-1011 was laid down on 29 February 1944 at Quincy, Mass., by the Bethlehem Steel Co.; launched on 29 March 1944; and commissioned on 5 May 1944.

 

During World War II, LST-1011 was assigned to the European theater and participated in the invasion of southern France in August and September 1944. She was then assigned to the Asiatic-Pacific theater and took part in the assault and occupation of Okinawa Gunto in June 1945. Following the war, she performed occupation duty in the Far East until mid-February 1946. The ship returned to the United States and was decommissioned on 20 June 1946 and struck from the Navy list on 31 July that same year. On 12 June 1948, she was sold to the Walter W. Johnson Co. for scrapping.
