In the morning on 20 Dec, 1944, U-870 fired torpedoes at a convoy of landing ships about 370 miles from Sao Miguel, Azores and reported USS LST-350, USS LST-369 and an escort vessel sunk. In fact, USS LST-359 was sunk and USS Fogg (DE 57) damaged by a Gnat.

USS Fogg (DE 57) was hit by a Gnat in the stern, killing four men and wounding two others. The crew fought two days to made it for the Azores, then the stern sheared off and only skeleton crew stayed aboard. Finally she reached the Azores in tow of the US Army tug USS LT-643 and USS Chinaberry (AN 61) the next day, escorted by USS Lee Fox (DE 65) and USS Ira Jeffery (DE 63). A first attempt to tow her to Boston failed due bad weather, but she at last arrived on 9 Mar, 1945. The destroyer escort was repaired and returned to service in June 1945.

Seaman Loesing appears Tablets of the Missing Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial Saint-James Departement de la Manche Basse-Normandie, France. He also has a cenotaph memorial Wildwood Cemetery Sheboygan Wisconsin, his body was never recovered.
