Originally built as PCE–901, she was laid down on 10 May 1943 by the Willamette Iron and Steel Corporation of Portland, Oregon; launched on 8 July 1943; reclassified USS Parris Island (AG–72) on 28 April 1944; and placed in service on 30 October 1944.
Parris Island was assigned to the Commandant 13th Naval District on 14 November 1944, upon completion of shakedown trials, and was transferred to the 11th Naval District on 26 November. She performed coastal duties until she was placed out of service on 19 June 1947. She was struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 1 August 1947 and turned over to the Maritime Commission on 20 January 1948 at San Diego.
In 1948, Parris Island was sold to Honduran registry. She retained her original name, serving as M/V Parris Island, and continued in this capacity into 1970. Her final fate is unknown.
