Class Notes:
A postwar LST, GRAHAM COUNTY (LST 1176), was reconfigured in 1972 at NSY Philadelphia as a support ship for patrol combatants of the ASHEVILLE (PG 84) class. Upon completion she was redesignated AGP 1176 on 1 Aug 1972 and deployed to the Mediterranean with her home port at Naples, Italy. Her conversion, which involved no major external changes, provided support facilities for the gunboats including accommodations for 575 men.
