CPO Walter Ventrice Shaw
[Add A Photo]
Walter Shaw, 1946, age 26. Though you can't tell from the crop, he's in uniform. The USS Yancey was the last ship to transit the Panama Canal in 1945. She stopped at New Orleans, La, and Jacksonville, Fla, before arriving at Norfolk, Va, on 29 January 1946 and the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard on 28 February. His wife Peggy, who was a native of Florida but had waited for him throughout the war in Philadelphia, met the ship in Jacksonville. This photo was taken at the Hotel George Washington Rainbow Room in Jacksonville while Walter was enjoying an evening out with Peggy and her brother Gid Godwin. The full photograph is posted on Peggy's memorial.
