The nature of Thomas' loss was known before completing research; therefore, no effort was expended to include his Lucky Bag entry.

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. He is listed as an "overseas loss" from World War II; suspect that is how his name was originally added to Memorial Hall.
