Me-Too was built as a civilian motorboat in 1913 by Julius Ollsen at Dames Point, Florida. The U.S. Navy purchased her from her owner, A. J. Shad of Jacksonville, Florida, on 8 May 1917 for use as a patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned on 28 June 1917 at Jacksonville as USS Me-Too (SP-155) with Ensign G. S. McNelty, USNRF, in command.
Me-Too was assigned to the 6th Naval District, where she operated out of the section base at Jacksonville and patrolled the lower reaches of the St. Johns River. After the Armistice with Germany that ended the war on 11 November 1918, she remained at Jacksonville.
Me-Too was sold to Carl Worden on 1 December 1919.
