(AN-68/YN-92) was a Ailanthus-class net laying ship which was
assigned to protect U.S. Navy ships and harbors during World War II
with her anti-submarine nets. On 6 June, Silverleaf sailed for
Melville, Rhode Island, to hold her shakedown cruise from 13 to 30
June. She was in the Boston Navy Yard from 1 July to 29 August for
post-shakedown availability. The net layer moved to New York City
and sailed from there on 3 September with a southbound convoy. On
the 10th, she was ordered to proceed independently to San Diego,
California, via the Panama Canal.
