1. USS Darter (SS-227). In an outstanding performance of duty, which was to award both submarines the Navy Unit Commendation and Darter's commanding officer, David Hayward McClintock, the Navy Cross, Darter and Dace made contact with the Japanese Center Force approaching Palawan Passage on 23 October.

2. USS Dace (SS-247). Since the location of this Japanese force had been unknown for several days, the contact report was significant. The two submarines closed the task force, and Darter attacked first, sinking Atago and damaging Takao. Dace followed with a torpedo attack that sank Maya, then went deep to avoid counterattacking destroyers. (Submitted on August 2, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
