After D-Day (June 6, 1944), the troop ship Marigold was newly refitted as a hospital ship and traveled to Europe to assist with the Allied invasion of southern France. After returning to the United States, the Marigold was stationed at Charleston, South Carolina, until being sent to the Pacific Theater in October 1944. The ship traveled through the Panama Canal to New Guinea and the Philippines before returning to the United States in May 1945.
