SS Meteor (1943)

The SS Meteor (MC hull number 292, Type C2-S-B1) was built by the Moore Drydock Co. in Oakland, CA in 1943, and upon completion of construction was pressed into service as a troop transport vessel. It transported troops throughout the Pacific Ocean from 1943 through 1945. It traveled from California to locations such as Hawaii, Eniwetok, Ulithi, Okinawa, Saipan and Guam, among others. After the war it was sold under the name American Miller in 1948 and scrapped in 1970.[1]
