Noteable events involving Enright include:
16 Apr 1944
On 16 April 1944, while westward bound, Enright was struck by a Portuguese merchant. A 65 foot hole was torn in her port quarter, all living spaces were flooded, and she took on a 12 degree list. The high quality of her crew was shown both in damage control work and the seamanship which brought her safely back to New York, where she repaired in a month. One of her crew lost his life in this collision.
