Last Known Activity

USS Enterprise (CV-6) departed Pearl Harbor on October 16, 1942 headed for the South Pacific, where with Hornet she formed TF 61, although Captain Osborne Hardison relieved Davis on 21 October. Five days later, Enterprise scout planes located a Japanese carrier force and the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands was under way. Enterprise aircraft struck carriers and cruisers during the struggle, while the Big E herself underwent intensive attack. Hit twice by bombs, Enterprise lost 44 men and had 75 wounded.
SK2 Faber was among the men killed in action. He was buried at sea the next day.

Service number: 3002314

Note: Although most sources have Thomas Faber listed as Storekeeper Third Class, the official muster rolls for the USS Enterprise (CV-6) show that he was promoted to Storekeeper Second Class in October 1942.
