    How can I find out about a sailor lost at sea in 1944?

      I live next door to a cemetery and walk for exercise there.  I came upon a memorial to a sailor lost at sea on October 4, 1944. My father worked for the family after he left the Army and he knew about the memorial but never heard what happened. I have asked my local VFW about him but they have no idea.  His name is Ensign Kenneth Earl Malott. I can't find anything in any history records about an attack or a ship going down or anything. I am just curious about the incident, with my father knowing the family and my son being Active Duty Navy.

       

      Any information you can give me would be appreciated.
