During the war, Ernst was an enlisted man serving aboard U-26, one of only two Type I-A U-Boats in the Kriegsmarine.  When Germany again built her Navy in the middle 1950's, he rejoined and ultimately retired at the rank of Kapitänleutnant.

He was a good friend and a strong bridgepost in Kiel.  He would not allow anyone to speak badly about Sharkhunters and always helped arrange our visits to the Memorials there and with the veterans of the U-Bootskameradschaft/Kiel.
