CDR Edward "Pops" Shaughnessy

Commander Edward "Pops" Shaughnessy, my grandfather, recently passed away at the ripe old age of 95 years old. As a Commander in the Navy for over twenty years, he received full military honors at his burial in Arlington National Cemetery - including a 21-gun salute, full marching band and a horse-drawn caisson. It was an incredible experience that made me so proud to have the honor of calling him my grandfather. RIP Pops!
