- Notes: Assigned to the Pacific, she initially conducted towing operations between Hawaii, Midway, and the Marshalls. She moved to the Solomons in Aug 1944 to participate in the Palau campaign, arriving off Peleliu 17 Sep. When CA-70 Canberra was torpedoed by a Japanese aircraft off Formosa 13 Oct 1944, Munsee was sent to help tow her to safety. At Ulithi in Nov 1944 she helped fight fires on AO-59 Mississinewa when the oiler was hit by a Japanese kaiten. She also assisted CV-15 Randolph when the carrier was bombed at Ulithi on 11 Mar 1945. Munsee participated in the Okinawa operation, towing DD-502 Sigsbee to Guam after the destroyer was damaged by kamikaze. She also went through the violent typhoon of early Jun 1945, during which CA-72 Pittsburgh lost 104 feet of her bow. Munsee located the section, nicknamed "McKeesport" (a suburb of Pittsburgh), and helped tow it to Guam. She served in the Marianas until hostilities ended, then proceeded to Okinawa and Japan for salvage and diving operations. In 1946 she participated in the atom-bomb tests at Bikini Atoll, and continued a variety of operations in the Pacific for the next 20+ years, including duty in the Vietnam area from 1965 to 1968.
