Call it mid-summer to early fall. Ranger was in the Atlantic (or the Med) until she left Norfolk on July 12 1944 and transited the Canal Zone on July 16. She arrived at San Diego on July 25, where she loaded up 90 airplanes and almost 1200 personnel (including 900 Marines) and headed for Pearl Harbor on July 28, arriving there August 3. She acted as a training carrier until replaced by Saratoga (Sara had been in overhaul at Puget Sound after her excursion with the British Fleet and returned to Pearl September 24) with one shared training mission October 1-5. Ranger left Pearl to return to San Diego on October 13, 1944 and acted as the west coast training carrier for the rest of the war, working from either San Diego or Alameda. She recorded her 75,000th landing on July 14, 1945 and may have taken as many as 2000 more before the end of the war, but was never involved in combat in the Pacific.
