Green Bay was laid down on 6 November 1966 as PGM-101 by Peterson Builders Inc. in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. While under construction, she was reclassified as Patrol Gunboat, PG-101 on 1 April 1967.
The Green Bay was home-ported in Little Creek, Virginia, and made numerous trips to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to serve in the role of the aggressor in fleet exercises. In addition, the Green Bay participated in many exercises that simulated the deployment of Navy Seals and US Marines onto hostile shores. On 9 August 1974, Green Bay was nominated, by COMPHIBLANT (Commander Amphibious Forces Atlantic) for the Arleigh Burke Award.
She was decommissioned 22 April 1977 at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Virginia, and was struck from the Navy Register on 1 October 1977.
Green Bay was transferred to Greece on 30 June 1989 as the corvette Tolmi (P-229) and was commissioned on 18 June 1991.
