USS Fargo (CL-106), 1945-1971
USS Fargo, first of a class of 10,000-ton light cruisers, was built at Camden, New Jersey. She was commissioned in December 1945, some three months after the end of the war with Japan that had brought about her construction. Her first active service was a cruise to South America in April and May 1946, after which she steamed to the Mediterranean Sea. During that deployment, which lasted until March 1947, Fargo visited many ports, included the disputed city of Trieste. A second Mediterranean cruise took place in May-September 1947 and was followed by two more in 1948 and 1949. The Truman Administration's late 1940s defense cutbacks resulted in a considerable reduction in the active U.S. Navy cruiser force, and Fargo was among the ships affected. She was decommissioned in mid-February 1950 and laid up in the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. Initially berthed at Bayonne, New Jersey, she was later moved to the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, Pennsylvania, where she remained until sold for scrapping in August 1971.
