There, she loaded Marines and combat cargo in preparation for an amphibious training operation to be held in the Mediterranean with forces of the [[United Kingdom]] and Italy. She transited the Strait of Gibraltar on 14 May 1958 and visited the ports of Izmir, Turkey; Athens, Greece; and Suda Bay, Crete. However, the operation was cancelled because of Middle East tensions, and ''Walworth County'' had the distinction of acting as a primary control ship in the initial landing of Marines at Beirut, Lebanon, on 15 July 1958. Her operations in this area continued until 1 October 1958 when she departed Beirut and sailed for the United States. She reached Morehead City on 19 October 1958 and became a unit of Amphibious Squadron 6.
