USS Hubbard During WWII

[Hubbard Photo]
[Back] Hubbard's final combat action came as part of Operation Teardrop, while hunting down the last of the German U-boats. A hunter-killer group centered around two escort carriers (CVEs) and numerous DEs, including Hubbard, encountered U-546 on 25 April 1945. Frederick C. Davis (DE 136) was torpedoed and sunk, but the US ships quickly avenged her loss. A series of depth charge attacks forced the submarine to the surface, where it was engaged by gunfire and sunk.
