USS Muir (DE-770) was a Cannon-class destroyer escort built for the U.S. Navy during World War II. She served in the Atlantic Ocean and provided escort service against submarine and air attack for Navy vessels and convoys.
She was named in honor of Kenneth Hart Muir who was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Navy Cross for his “outstanding courage and unselfish devotion to his men” when he went down with his ship after getting his men off before it went down.
Muir was laid down by Tampa Shipbuilding Co., Tampa, Florida, 1 June 1943; launched 4 June 1944; sponsored by Mrs. Witten H. McConnochie, sister of the late Lieutenant (jg.) Muir; and commissioned 30 August 1944, Lt. Comdr. Theodore A. O’Gorman, USNR, in command.
In September 1947 she decommissioned and entered the Atlantic Reserve Fleet at Green Cove Springs, Florida, until 2 February 1956 when she was delivered on loan under the Military Assistance Program to the Republic of Korea at Boston Naval Shipyard. Struck from the Navy list 1 July 1960, she continued to serve the South Korean Navy on loan as Kyongki (F 71) until she was stricken 28 December 1977 and sent to the Philippines for cannibalization of parts.
