The U-boat's crew numbered 52, of which 44 men were rescued by U.S.S. Borie after being in the water about seven hours. Among the survivors were the commander, the executive officer, and the engineer officer, 16 ratings and 25 enlisted men. U.S.S. Borie transferred the prisoners to U.S.S. Card the following day. They were landed at Casablanca, French Morocco, on 17 August, and it was there that a preliminary interrogation was conducted.
Nine prisoners were hospitalized upon arrival at Casablanca and two of them could not be moved when the remainder was sent to the United States on the next available transport. Eighteen of the 42 prisoners who arrived in the United States 25 September 1943 were selected to be questioned further at an interrogation center.

Photo-reconnaissance aerial, taken from 8,500 feet, showing battleship Tirpitz surrounded by repair vessels (left), and the floating workshop Neumark (right), both moored behind double torpedo booms in Kaafjord, Norway. The outstanding sortie which produced this photograph was flown in De Havilland Mosquito PR Mark XVI, NS504, of No. 544 Squadron RAF, temporarily detached to Leuchars, Fife. After refuelling at Sullom Voe in the Shetland Islands, Flight Lieutenant Dodd and Flight Sergeant Hill flew to Kaafjord and back to Leuchars, to complete one of the longest photo-reconnaissance flights ever made, having spent 7 hours 40 minutes in the air. Dodd was awarded an immediate DSO for this achievement.

On 14 September 1976, while refuelling alongside USS John F. Kennedy, the ships came together and collided. Bordelon's port bow and some of the superstructure were damaged and the main mast snapped and fell on the signal shack, injuring some of the handling team.
Due to the damage to the superstructure and electronics and the age and condition of the hull, Bordelon was decommissioned and struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 1 February 1977, transferred to Iran in July 1977, and cannibalized for spare parts.
