USS Hepburn (DE/FF-1055) was a United States Navy Knox class frigate named for Arthur Japy Hepburn. She was laid down 1 June 1966, by Todd Pacific Shipyards, Los Angeles Division, San Pedro, CA; and launched 25 March 1967; sponsored by Mrs. Arthur J. Hepburn and Mrs. Lorraine Hepburn Barse. She was delivered 27 June 1969 and commissioned 3 July 1969.
Hepburn was an escorting member of the Indian ocean Task Group of 1976. The task group consisted of USS Fox (CG-33), USS Gray (FF-1054) and USNS Passumpsic (oiler). The task group sailed from Subic Bay in December 1975. The task group made port calls at Singapore, Karache, Mombasa, La Reunion and Diego Garcia. While transitting from Karache to the southern Indian Ocean, the group passed through the anchorage area of the Soviet task forces anchored off the island of Socotra. During their time in the Arabian Sea, the task group conducted the first ever acoustical survey of this body of water. The Task group returned to Subic Bay on March 1976.
She was decommissioned 20 December 1991 and struck 11 January 1995. Hepburn was "disposed of in support of Fleet training exercise" (i.e., sunk as a target) on 4 June 2002.
