History:
USS Roberts (DE-749) was a Cannon-class destroyer escort built for the United States Navy during World War II. She served in the Pacific Ocean and provided escort service against submarine and air attack for Navy vessels and convoys. Post-war, she served as a training ship until finally decommissioned in 1968.

She was named in honor of Arthur John Roberts, Jr. who was killed in the Battle of Tassafaronga, Guadalcanal, 30 November-1 December 1942. The ship was laid down on 11 February 1943 by the Western Pipe and Steel Company, San Pedro, California; launched on 14 November 1943; sponsored by Mrs. Ruth Marohn; and commissioned on 2 September 1944, Lt. Comdr. Robert M. Catharine, Jr., USNR, in command.
