ARL38 USS KRISHNA Ir. THE USS KRISHNA (ARL 38) was built by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works, Seneca, Illinois. She was launched on 25 May 1945 and was commissioned on 3 De- cember 1945. Like the other ships in her class the KRISHNA is a converted LST; it was originally designated LST 1149. However, she never saw service as an LST as it was converted to an ARL soon after being built. The KRISHNA reported to the At- lantic Fleet on 1 February 1946 and was assigned to the Amphibious Force for duty. The KRISHNA is designated a Repair Ship, the letter designatioa is ARL, the number is of course a further designation within the class. The word KRISHNA is derived from Hindu mythology with the meaning " the seventh carnation of the God Vishnu. " LT BURTON was the commanding officer of the KRISHNA from her commissioning date to early in 1947, he was relieved as commanding officer by LCDR PARLIER who remained in command until 11 July 1949, at which time he was relieved by LCDR H. C. BROWN. While the KRISHNA was under the command of LCDR BROWN, she participated in Operation Blue Jay 1951, this was the initial phase of the estab- lishment of the great air base at Thule, Greenland. During this Operation the KRISHNA received five letters of commendation for repair work accomplished beyond the call. For this she earned the name of " The Can Do Ship " . LCDR BROWN was relieved in January 1952 by the present Commanding Officer LCDR G. W. PRUE. In addition to Operation Blue Jay, the KRISHNA has participated in numerous Amphibious operations.
