The Holland was completed in 1926 for the U.S. Navy as a submarine tender. She spent most of her career serving as a submarine flagship in San Diego. She was sent to Cavite in the Philippines just prior to the outbreak of war, and was docked at Manila when war broke out. She escaped to the south and served in the Pacific throughout the war.
