Thomas was lost when he went missing on a hike in Hawaii while commanding officer of USS Dobbin (AD 3) on July 18, 1941.

Memorial Hall Error

There is no evidence that Thomas' loss was in any way operational. Despite his loss occurring 5 months before Pearl Harbor, he is listed as an "overseas loss" from World War II; suspect that is how his name was originally added to Memorial Hall.

Thomas is one of 7 members of the Class of 1914 on Virtual Memorial Hall.
