USS Grouse was a Firecrest-class coastal minesweeper launched in 1938. It was commissioned on June 20, 1941 and served in the US Navy for 3 years until it was decommissioned on August 26, 1944. During its activity, the ship had the main missions within the 11th Naval District under Lt. Theodore L. Bergen’s command, removing the mines located in the minefields in the water so that other ships could pass safely.
