The USS Report was turned over to the U.S. Army in the early 1960's and became the main vessel in a small U.S. Army Intelligence flotilla. By 1966 the flotilla consisted of the U.S.A.S. (U.S. Army Ship) Report, AGP 289, a 109' experimental PT Boat, and two 65' Aviation Rescue (AVR) boats. The Report made a number of sorties, many of which were between Korea and Japan. When President Johnson visited Korea the Report and her two AVR's provided security for Inchon Harbor.
Returned to the Navy in early 1967, Report was transferred to the Korean Navy, on loan, commissioned as Kojin (PCE-50), and continues that service into 1970. Possibly scrapped in 1973.
