General John Pope (AP-110) (Disposed)

The General John S. Pope is the sole remaining General-class P2 transport.  It was constructed in 1943, and features geared steam turbine propulsion.  Following an initial transatlantic voyage to Scotland, the Pope moved to the Pacific theater, where it moved large numbers of troops to and around the Philippines, Australia, and surrounding islands.  In June of 1945, the Pope shifted to service re-deploying troops from the European to the Pacific theaters; however, the war ended about the time that the vessel completed its first voyage in this service.   The Pope continued in service until mid-1946.  Reinstated on the Naval Register on July 20, 1950, General Pope was assigned to the Military Sea Transportation Service on August 1, 1950.  During the Korean fighting, it carried American troops to Japan and Korea.  Following the war, the ship continued to sail to Japanese and Korean ports on troop rotation duties, finally being placed in reduced operational status at Seattle in May of 1955.  General Pope was reactivated in August 1965 for a third period of service carrying troops to bases in the Pacific and East Asia, which supported the war in Vietnam.  The Pope was deactivated and laid-up in the Maritime Administration’s Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet, where it remained until it was withdrawn and moved to Brownsville, Texas under a recycling contract on May 5, 2010. 

The General John S. Pope received six battle stars for its Korean War service.
