AV-2 Jason

The first Jason (AC-12) was laid down as a collier on 26 March 1912, and launched 16 November 1912 by Maryland Steel Co., Sparrows Point, MD. From 1925 to 1932 Jason operated in the Far East, engaging in transport duties supporting the air squadron. Peace in China was constantly jeopardized by warlike factions within and aggression from without. Jason and the other members of the Asiatic Fleet kept the situation in hand by making the presence of America's naval strength felt. Jason was reclassified AV-2 on 21 January 1930.
