The Victory Ship in the photo below is the Yale Victory. TheYale Victory was built in Yard No. 2 of Kaiser's Permanente Metals Richmond, California Yards. It's hull number was 735. The Yale Victory was laid down on December 13, 1944 and was launched on January 1, 1945. TheYale Victory was delivered to the U.S. Maritime Commission's War Shipping Administration on February 24, 1945 for operation by the Olympic Steamship Company.

The Yale Victory was transferred to the U.S. Army on June 18, 1946 and began sailing between San Francisco, California, and the Far East. Her home port was changed to Seattle, Washington in December of 1946. The Yale Victory was renamed Sgt. Archer T. Gammon on October 31, 1947. In March 1950, the ship was transferred to the Navy for use in the Military Sea Transportation Service (MSTS) and was placed in service as USNS Sgt. Archer T. Gammon (T-AK-243)

In the early 1950's, the ship sailed from Seattle to Japan, Korea, and Alaska. After the Korean Conflict was over, the range of the USNS Sgt. Archer T. Gammon was extended. She then operated out of San Francisco to central and western Pacific Ocean ports and, during the periods of conflict in the Middle East, to Caribbean and western and eastern Atlantic Ocean areas.

The ship was transferred to MSTS, Atlantic, at New York City in 1961 and carried cargo for the U S Navy under the Military Sealift Command. In early 1973, the Sgt. Archer T. Gammon was transferred to the U.S. Maritime Administration for disposal. The ship was sold in late 1973 and in 1974 was scrapped at Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
