 Definition Arcturus-class attack cargo ship [d] [e]

I intend to maintain this article on Citizendium. I wrote its original version for Wikipedia during 2006. The source for most of the material was the public domain Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships. I did the extensive Wikification, which included standardization of geographical names across the range of articles on similar ships. I also copy edited the DANFS material, added facts, found photos and external links, etc. There have been few changes by others, and they are minor. I left in the red links, hoping that Citizendium would have articles about them soon. The table at the top of the article is based on similar tables in Wikipedia; I've modified it slightly for CZ.

When I brought the article to CZ, I added sections for each year the ship was in commission, improved the headings on the table, and made minor copy edits. Louis F. Sander 17:59, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Something seems to be wrong with the history of this ship. Some records say she may have been decommissioned after WWII and recommissioned for Korea. If she was truly later designated as an LKA, she was probably in commission in 1969 (unless she was in mothballs and they redesignated even mothballed ships). Louis F.
