Other Comments:
THIS WAS WRITTEN ABOUT HIM:

EAGER TO LIVE, HE DARED TO DIE......

WHO SHALL BE SHORT -SIGHTED ENOUGH TO MEASURE A LIFE BY THE MERE TICKING OF A CLOCK?
CAPTAIN EDWARD SHAW WAS BUT 23 YEARS OF AGE, YET HE HAD LIVED RICHLY. DEPRIVED OF THE PRIVILAGE OF LIVING OUT HIS YEARS IN PEACE AND HAPPINESS, WHICH IS THE BIRTHRIGHT OF EVERY AMERICAN BOY,HE MUST BE COUNTED AMONG THOSE WHO HAVE MADE MUCH OF EXISTENCE.
WHEN THE YOUNG MARINE FIGHTER PILOT ACE WAS KILLED YESTERDAY IN A TEST FLIGHT IN CALIFORNIA HE HAD TO HIS CREDIT 13 ENEMY PLANES SHOT DOWN IN AERIAL COMBAT IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC. AMONG THE FIRST TO THROW BACK THE JAPS AT GUADALCANAL, HE HAD BEEN REASSIGNED TO INSTRUCTOR DUTY IN THIS COUNTRY.
IT WOULD BE FOLLY TO TRY TO DISREGARD THE PAIN OF SUCH A LEAVE TAKING. WHEN FATE STRODE DOWN THE RANKS OF YOUNG SERVICE MEN, SHAW WAS SINGLEDOUT AS A MAN CHOSEN BY HIS OWN COURSE UPON THE CHECKERBOARD OF NIGHTS AND DAYS, WHO HAD GONE OUT TO MEET DESTINY UNAFRAID.
