"GEORGE WINSTON BAILEY 'Win' Salt Lake City, Utah WIN, born and raised in the "Great American Desert" must have had a deep water sailor somewhere in his ancestry or else his childish hours spent in the very salty Great Salt Lake instilled the desire to be a real "salt" and join our Navy. Our young hero inherited the old Mormon traits of captivating the fair sex and making life enjoyable whether it be in a desert or Naval Academy. It was a lucky day for Navy when Win decided that he could do better shining brightwork than building bridges and so leave his engineering course at Utah U. for the school for young boys on the Severn. Winning a reputation as a savoir early in plebe year, he has held his star with little boning and much snaking. But Win's gifts are not confined solely to these lines, for he was one of the stalwarts of the tennis, wrestling and cross country teams for three seasons. This is a man machined to a water-tight fit for his place in the service, and we can only predict the brightest of futures and wish him the best of luck."

-- United States Navel Academy, Class of 1932 Yearbook

In 2010, Capt. Bailey's ashes were relocated from the United States Naval Academy Cemetery to Arlington National Cemetery, and buried together with his wife Jane.
