Fates of the Crew
The rest of the crew aided each other and reached Hermet Island. Three days later, they located friendly natives who provide them food and shelter. Together, the crew searched the outer atoll area for the four missing men using a native canoe.
Fourteen days after bailing out, (other sources state 9 days later) the crew was rescued by a PBY Catalina, that sighted them the day before. Afterwards, the Catalina searched the entire atoll for the missing crew members, without success, then returned to base in the Admiralties. The surviving crew were debriefed and returned to duty.
Haugrud has a memorial marker at Pelican Rapids Veteran's Memorial in Pelican Rapids, Michigan. Swadley has a memorial marker at Southland Cemetery in Grand Prairie, Texas.
