The ship was laid down by the Toledo Shipbuilding Company of Toledo,
Ohio, on 14 July 1941. Storis was launched on 4 April 1942 and commissioned on
30 September 1942 as an ice patrol tender. Initially assigned to the North
Atlantic during World War II, Storis participated in the Greenland Patrols. She
was tasked with patrolling the east coast of Greenland to prevent the
establishment of German weather stations. During her first years, Storis
operated in the very waters from which her name was derived. Originally to be named Eskimo, the U.S.
Department of State objected to the name of the new cutter on the basis that the
natives of Greenland would be offended by the name.
"Storis" is a Scandinavian
word meaning - great ice.
