USS Argonne (AG-31)
At the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard on 11 August 1941 during a refit.
The ship, previously unarmed, had her long-assigned armament of 4 5"/51 guns (one visible here) and 4 3" anti-aircraft guns installed during this refit. The two forward kingposts have been removed and the crowsnest relocated high up just before the bridge. The ship is being repainted into Measure One camouflage. The car on the pier is parked in a space marked "Commanding Officer, USS Argonne".
