| On her Sixth War Patrol, WAHOO conducted nine separate
torpedo attacks without sinking a single enemy ship. Malfunctioning
torpedoes which ran erratically, exploded prematurely or failed to detonate
upon striking the target were sighted by Captain Morton as the cause for
this unsuccessful run.
However, WAHOO did not return without her victims.
During her return from the Sea of Japan, Morton battle surfaced on three
separate occasions to sink a sampan with his deck guns.
