USS Mount Baker (AE-4) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Mount Baker was a Lassen-class ammunition ship which was commissioned on May 16, 1941, with Capt. W.I. Causey in command. It was originally named USS Kilauea with a length of 459 feet, a beam of 63 feet and a complement of 280 officers. It completed service of 7 years before being decommissioned for the first time in January 1947, during which the ship had to carry ammunition to ships and bases located in the Mediterranean. On March 17, 1943, the Kilauea was renamed as Mount Baker in order to avoid confusion with a ship that was named in a similar way. Its first voyages were to Oran, Algiers, Arzeu, Bizerte, and Palermo. The second commissioning took place on December 5, 1951, under Capt. Richard Mueller Nixon's command. This time, the ship supplied ammunition to US forces in Communist North Korea. It completed service of 18 years before being struck on December 2, 1969. In 1974, the USS Mount Baker was scrapped.
