LCS-102 is a United States Navy Landing Craft, Support, completed in 1945. The ship is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for its participation in the amphibious invasion of Okinawa and peacekeeping operations following the surrender of Japan, and under Criterion C as the sole intact representative of her class of vessel, at the local level of significance, as a significant example of naval engineering. LCS-102, along with the sister ships of her class, participated in the greatest conflict of the 20th century, World War II. Although these smaller ships are seldom mentioned in accounts of that war, they, along with the men that served on them, played an important part in the closing battles of that conflict. LCS-102 participated in the last major battle of the war, at Okinawa. After the war ended she was assigned to mine destruction along the China coast and rivers. The period of significance is 1945-1946, the period that the ship was in US Navy service.
