Fate during World War II: The steam tanker Halo, built in 1920 and owned by the Cities Service Oil Company, New York, was torpedoed by the German vessel U-506 about fifty miles from the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River, May 20, 1942. The first torpedo hit on the starboard side near the bridge and was followed by a second hit close to the bridge.  This part of the ship was reportedly “completely destroyed.” As fire spread across the vessel, it began to plunge down at the bow. The explosions and fire destroyed all four lifeboats and three life rafts.  The crew was able to launch only one partially-burned life raft before flames over took the ship and it sank. Out of a crew of forty-two men, only twenty-three managed to escape, most by just grabbing life vests and jumping overboard.
