RICHARD J. KROTH, LTJG, USN
Richard Kroth '44
Date of birth: July 9, 1921
Date of death: October 25, 1944
From the 1944 Lucky Bag:
Richard was lost when USS Tang (SS 306) was sunk by a circular run of her own torpedo on October 24, 1944 in the Taiwan Strait.
Note that he changed his name at some point to Kroth from Krotkiewicz. On Eternal Patrol also lists him as a recipient of the Silver Star; unable to find another citation for this.
