USS Mount Katmai (AE-16) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

USS Mount Katmai was a Mount Hood-class ammunition ship laid down on November 11, 1944 and launched on January 6, 1945. It was commissioned on July 21, 1945 with Comdr. C. H. Ross in command. It served in the US Navy for 28 years until it was decommissioned in 1973. In the first 5 years, the USS Mount Katmai had to load the ships located in the Western Pacific with ammunition. It also participated in the Korean War, replenishing ships in the Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan. The Vietnam War also represented an important period during which the ship contributed to rearm and replenish combatant ships, like carriers and escorts. It was decommissioned on August 14, 1973, and struck from the Naval Register the same day. On April 5, 1974, the USS Mount Katmai was sold for scrap.
