  History of the USS LST 519
Placed in partial commission status at Seneca on 8 February, the LST 519 proceeded down the Illinois River into the Mississippi River and down to the Naval base at Algiers, Louisiana, directly across from New Orleans where she was fully commissioned on 17 February 1944.

On 15 July 1946, the LST 519 was transferred to the Commander, Eastern Sea Frontier for duty as a disposal vessel of defective and obsolete munitions.

LSTs seemed to be very hard to control as far as steering in close quarters was concerned, and almost all of them had dings and dents where they had made contact with a dock or with another ship at some time in their life.
The group of LSTs arrived at Milne Bay, which is on the eastern tip of New Guinea, on March 29, 1944, and we were immediately aware that this must be one of the places in the world which God had intended to be a punishment for all who were required to be there.
