Cape Cod was laid down on 27 January 1979 at San Diego, California, by the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company and launched on 2 August 1980. The destroyer tender worked for many years in active naval service. It assisted the Spruance-class destroyers, the Truxtun-class cruisers and Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates.

She was commissioned on 17 April 1982 and served 13 years as a destroyer tender before being decommissioned on 29 September 1995, and stricken from the Navy list on 7 April 1999. She was berthed at the James River Reserve Fleet in Fort Eustis, VA, until she was sold for scrap in 2012.
