USS Boggs was originally commissioned as a flush-deck four pipe destroyer in 1918. Shortly before the start of the Second World War, she was converted to a Destroyer Minesweeper, a configuration she kept until June of 1945 when her mine sweeping gear was removed and she was converted to a high-speed target towing vessel.
