Loss

Albert was lost on July 10, 1943; he had been Signal Officer and Assistant Navigator when USS Strong (DD 467) was sunk on July 5, 1943.

Unclear why his date of death is several days following the sinking; it's possible he survived the sinking but later died of his wounds. He was last seen on the bow of the ship, helping the crew evacuate to another destroyer.

His mother was listed as next of kin.
