 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

LCDR Holt was the commanding officer of the Bullhead from 31 July, 1945 until the sub was lost.
 
USS Bullhead (SS-332) began her third and final patrol on 31 July 1945. The last contact with the boat was on 2 August. Post war Japanese records show that a plane depth charged and presumably sunk an American Submarine on 6 August, the same day the Atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Lieutenant Commander Holt was listed as Missing in Action and officially declared dead 23 August 1946.
