 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

USS Scamp (SS-277) began her 8th war patrol on 16 October 1944, and was last heard from on 9 November. Japanese records indicate that a submarine was depth charged near Tokyo bay on 11 November, and five days later another attack produced a large explosion. This may have been the fate of the Scamp. Seaman 1st Class Rodriguez was listed as missing in action and later declared dead 6 December 1945.
