Staff Sgt. Alan W. Shaw was the third of seven children and was a 1994 graduate of Wilbur D. Mills High School in Little
Rock, AR. He then attended Arkansas Tech University before joining the U.S. Marine Corp in 1998. Alan served two overseas tours and one sea service tour. He was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 2002 and proceeded to attended University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Alan and his wife were married on Oct. 23, 2003 and in October of 2004 he decided once again to serve his country by joining the US Army. Six weeks later he was serving his first combat tour in Baghdad, Iraq and was reunited with his family in March 2005. He left for his second tour in support of OIF II Oct. 4, 2006. Alan exhibited great pride in his military career and was an outstanding leader and friend to his fellow soldiers. He was always among the first to volunteer, as he believed wholeheartedly in his mission as a part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Anyone who knew Alan will remember his passion for life and his ability to create an environment of happiness for those around him. He was adamant about his beliefs and his plan for the future and was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was a loving son, brother, husband, friend and, most of all, daddy. The legacy he has left behind will continue to enrich the lives and loves of all. He was 31.
