USS Dane (APA-238) was a Haskell-class attack transport that was built for service with the US Navy in World War II. She was commissioned shortly after the war and consequently never saw action. Dane was named after a county in Wisconsin. She was launched on 9 August 1945 by Oregon Shipbuilding of Portland, Oregon, under a Maritime Commission contract; transferred to the Navy 29 October 1945; and commissioned the same day, Captain D. K. Day in command. Dane arrived too late too see action in World War II, but she arrived in time to participate in Operation Magic Carpet, the massive sealift made shortly after the war to bring returning servicemen home. Dane made three "Magic Carpet" voyages to the West Pacific from 29 December 1945 to 10 July 1946, bringing home veterans from Okinawa, Guam, Peleliu, Manus, Truk, and Kwajalein.
