Alarm (AM-140) was laid down on 8 June 1942 at Tampa, Fla., by the Tampa Shipbuilding Co.; launched on December 1942; sponsored by Mrs. M. A. Lynch, and completed on 5 August 1943. On the latter day, she was transferred to the Soviet Navy under the lend-lease program and served them as T-113. Never returned by the Soviets, Alarm was carried on the American Navy list-as MSF-140 after 7 February 1955-until 1 January 1983 when her name was struck.
