The USS Oregon was the U.S. battleship George Enos, Jr. was assigned to in the second half of 1944. He served aboard for the remainder of the Second Great War and into 1945.

In 1944, after the war was over, the Oregon was attacked by an exploding bumboat off the coast of Miami, killing 31 and wounding 150. The U.S. responded by taking and executing 10 hostages for every sailor killed or wounded. Some crewmembers of the Oregon discussed responding by shelling Miami but discipline held and no action was taken.
