My father's name is Ernie Krogh. His nick name was "Whitey" because his hair was very blond. He went to boot camp in San Diego, May of 1942 Co. 443. He first served on Guadalcanal. The unit patch on his uniform is a red shield with a gold serpent with the Roman Numeral III at the top. Any one knowing Ernie from boot camp or later service please contact me. I am his oldest son.
