On 11 July 1950 she transferred to New London, Connecticut, beginning her operations with the Atlantic Fleet with a Mediterranean Sea cruise.

During a fleet exercise on 1 November 1954, she collided with USS   Norris   (DD-859) while attempting to fire simulated torpedoes at a surface attack force.

On 26 September 1958, Bergall left the United States, entered the Mediterranean on 9 October, and arrived in İzmir, Turkey, on 15 October, where she was decommissioned on 17 October and transferred to the Turkish Navy, commissioned there as Turgutreis ("turgatrees").

Bergall received four battle stars during World War II.

TCG Turgutreis

Ex-Bergall was transferred, on loan, to Turkey on 17 October 1958, where she served as TCG Turgutreis (S 342). Her name was struck from the U.S. Naval Vessel Register on 1 February 1973, and she was sold to the Turkish government on 15 February 1973. Turgutreis served in the Turkish Navy until decommissioned on 5 April 1983. She was renamed Ceryan Botu - 6 and served as a yard craft and charging boat for her sisters at Gölcük Navy Yard until she was released from service in 1996. She was sold for scrap in April 2000.

ww2dbase USS Bergall was commissioned into service in Jun 1944. In the South China Sea south of French Indochina, she attacked a Japanese convoy and damaged heavy cruiser Myoko, but also sustained minor damage from an 8-inch shell which passed through the submarine without detonating both ships would retire from combat due to damage, but while damaged Myoko would remain in Singapore until the end of the war, Bergall would return to combat in 1945. On 13 Jun 1945, Bergall was damaged in the aft section by a friendly naval mine. USS Bergall was given credit for sinking 14,710 tons of Japanese merchant shipping during WW2. After the war, she served with the US Navy's Pacific Fleet until 1950, and with the Atlantic Fleet until Oct 1958 when she was transferred to Turkey under the Military Assistance Program. Commissioned as TCG Turgutreis with the hull number of S 24. In 1959, her hull number was redesignated S 342 to conform to new North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) naming conventions. In 1974, she supported the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. As she became obsolete, she became a receiving boat at Gölcük Navy Yard in Turkey under the new name of Ceryah Botu.

Bergall is Sturgeon-class attack submarine, was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the bergall, a small fish found along the Atlantic coast of North America from the Chesapeake Bay to Labrador.
Ship’s Motto: “Invisible, Invulnerable, Invincible”

BERGALL is the second submarine to bear the name. The first was built by Electric Boat in 1944. During World War II, SS 320 made five war patrols and sank or damaged over 100,000 tons of enemy shipping. This is the reason for there being five stars on the SSN 667 Ship's Crest.

In 1970 Bergall became the first submarine to undergo the MK-48 torpedo conversion and in 1971 she was the first ship to carry the MK-48 torpedo in its operational warshot configuration. The AN/BQQ-5 digital sonar system was temporarily installed for test and evaluation in 1972. Bergall was awarded her first Navy Unit Commendation that year for her performance in the testing of the sonar systems and outstanding MK-48 torpedo proficiency. BERGALL has earned the Navy Unit Commendation (twice), Meritorious Unit Commendation (Four times), and numerous Battle Efficiency ("E"), Anti-submarine Warfare ("A"), Weapons Proficiency ("E"), Damage Control ("DC") and Communications ("C").

Bergall was twice awarded the Commander, Sixth Fleet "Hook 'Em" award during deployment to the Mediterranean in 1977 and 1982.

Bergall appeared in three movies – "The Submarine", "Topside Safety" and episode 3 of the British TV series Sailor . In Sailor a medical evacuation from BERGALL was undertaken by a helicopter from the British Aircraft Carrier HMS Ark Royal

Bergall was the first east -coast submarine to carry a Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle (DSRV).

Bergall completed 14 deployments and various exercises and operations vital to the national security of the United States.

An ammunition ship explodes in the Port Chicago disaster

An ammunition ship explodes while being loaded in Port Chicago, California, killing 320 people on July 17, 1944. The United States’ World War II military campaign in the Pacific was in full swing at the time. Poor procedures and lack of training led to the disaster.

Port Chicago, about 30 miles north of San Francisco, was developed into a munitions facility when the Naval Ammunition Depot at Mare Island, California, could not fully supply the war effort. By the summer of 1944, expansion of the Port Chicago facility allowed for loading two ships at once around the clock. The Navy units assigned to the dangerous loading operations were generally segregated African-American units. For the most part, these men had not been trained in handling munitions. Additionally, safety standards were forgotten in the rush to keep up frenetic loading schedules.

On the evening of July 17, the SS Quinault Victory and SS E.A. Bryan, two merchant ships, were being loaded. The holds were being packed with 4,600 tons of explosives𠅋ombs, depth charges and ammunition. Another 400 tons of explosives were nearby on rail cars. Approximately 320 workers were on or near the pier when, at 10:18 p.m., a series of massive explosions over several seconds destroyed everything and everyone in the vicinity. The blasts were felt as far away as Nevada and the resulting damage extended as far as San Francisco. Every building in Port Chicago was damaged and people were literally knocked off their feet. Smoke and fire extended nearly two miles into the air. The pilot of a plane flying at 9,000 feet in the area claimed that metal chunks from the explosion flew past him.

Nearly two-thirds of the people killed at Port Chicago were African-American enlisted men in the Navy� percent of all African-Americans killed during World War II. The surviving men in these units, who helped put out the fires and saw the horrors firsthand, were quickly reassigned to Mare Island. Less than a month later, when ordered to load more munitions, but still having received no training, 258 African American sailors refused to carry out the orders. Two hundred and eight of them were then sentenced to bad conduct discharges and pay forfeiture. The remaining 50 men were put on trial for general court martial. They were sentenced to between eight and 15 years of hard labor, though two years later all were given clemency. A 1994 review of the trials revealed race played a large factor in the harsh sentences. In December 1999, President Clinton pardoned Freddie Meeks, one of only three of the 50 convicted sailors known to be alive at the time.

The Port Chicago disaster eventually led to the implementation of far safer procedures for loading ammunition. In addition, greater emphasis was put on proper training in explosives handling and the munitions themselves were altered for greater safety. There is now a national memorial to the victims at the site.
