|85k||Born in Baltimore, Md., 16 September 1911, Herbert Fuller Carroll, Jr., graduated from the Naval Academy on 1 June 1934 with the rank of ensign. After almost continuous sea service, he reported to USS Astoria (CA 34). Lieutenant Carroll died in action 9 August 1942 during the Battle of Savo Island, in which Astoria was lost. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart.
USS Carroll (DE 171) (1943-1946) was the first ship to be named in his honor.
