Last Known Activity

Died aboard the USS Liscome Bay (CVE-56) when she was torpedoed and sunk off Makin Island, November 24, 1943 by IJN submarine I-175
   
Comments/Citation
At 0430, November 24, 1943, the ship went to routine general quarters at 0505 as flight crews prepared their planes for dawn launchings. There was no warning, Japanese Submarine I-175 was shadowing the carrier, and fired a torpedo at the carrier. At about 0510 when a lookout shouted: " . . . here comes a torpedo!" It struck abaft the after engineroom an instant later with a shattering roar. A second major detonation closely followed the first, the entire interior burst into flames. At 0533, Liscome Bay listed to starboard and sank, 272 of her crew were rescued
