Built as a mobilization test platform, Bauer was designed to meet the mass production requirements that a war with the [[Soviet Union]] might generate and to counter the growing threat from advanced Russian [[submarine]]s. Assigned to Escort Squadron (CortRon) 3 at San Diego, she underwent six months of preparatory training exercises. On 12 June 1958, she departed San Diego for duty with [[United States Seventh Fleet|7th Fleet]] in the Far East. Arriving at Yokosuka, Japan, on 2 July, she joined the antisubmarine warfare (ASW) task group on its patrols in the East China Sea. For the next five months, the destroyer escort cruised western Pacific waters, visiting ports in Japan, the Philippines, and Taiwan, before returning to San Diego on 4 December.
