David Nafe Kerr (1916-1978) graduated from Washington University School of Medicine in 1941.  Upon graduation he joined the US Army General Hospital 21 unit, which was drawn in large part from the medical staff of Washington University and Barnes Hospital.  Dr. Kerr was stationed with the unit at Fort Benning, Georgia in January 1942.  He served as a medical officer in northern Africa, Italy, and France between 1942-1946.  Despite his noncombatant status as a physician, Dr. Kerr was awarded the Silver Star in 1944 “for gallantry in action.”
