USS LST-1064 was an LST-542-class tank landing ship of the United States Navy. She was later named Nansemond County (LST-1064), but never saw active service under that name.

She was laid down on 9 January 1945 at the Bethlehem-Hingham Shipyard, Hingham, Massachusetts and was launched on 14 February 1945, called simply USS LST-1064. She was commissioned on 12 March 1945 by Lieutenant Leland H. Austin.

She was named Nansemond County on 1 July 1955 after Nansemond County, Virginia, then was slated for disposal on 17 September 1959.

The ship was purchased by Japan in April 1961 under the terms of the Military Assistance Program and sailed as the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force's JDS Shiretoko (LST-4003). In 1975, she was returned to the United States.

The ship was next transferred to the Philippines on 24 September 1976, and served in the Philippine Navy as RPS Samar Del Norte (LT-510), after the province of Northern Samar.
