The USS Tutuila (ARG-4) was an internal combustion engine repair ship that saw service in the United States Navy during World War II, The Korean War, and The Vietnam War as well as several smaller actions. Named for the Island of Tutuila, the largest and main island of American Samoa, it was the second U.S. Naval vessel to bear the name. After serving for nearly 30 years Tutuila was sold to the Republic of China in 1972.

The Tutuila Association is a non-profit organization comprised of men who served aboard the Tutuila. We welcome all sailors  who have served on the Tutuila.
