USS Osberg (DE-538) was a John C. Butler-class destroyer escort acquired by the U.S. Navy during World War II. The primary purpose of the destroyer escort was to escort and protect ships in convoy, in addition to other tasks as assigned, such as patrol or radar picket.

The ship was named after Ensign Carl A. Osberg, who saw action 4 June 1942 as a TBD Devastator torpedo bomber during the Battle of Midway.[1][2]
