Jason was completed as a fleet collier in 1913 with motorised conveyors to speed re-fuelling of warships (see USS Jupiter). From April-July 1918 she delivered aviation materials to Scotland. In 1920, she was designated AC 12 and took aircraft & equipment to Guam. In 1925, she was tender to the Asiatic Fleet's aircraft based in the Philippines but was not designated AV 2 until 1930 and she returned to the USA in 1932 and this model with Martin T3M2 floatplanes (see SMY-F4) accurately represents the period 1925-32.
