Standard Arrow-a merchant tanker built by the New York Shipbuilding Co. at Camden, N. J., in 1916 —was acquired by the Navy on 4 April 1944 and commissioned on the same date as Signal (IX—142).

Signal supported the war effort in the Pacific by carrying and storing oil for Service Squadron 10, based at Majuro and Ulithi atolls.
