Other Comments:
Bill Galloway is my father-in-law.  This profile was pieced together from his personal belongings, his discharge, his DD-214, some of his old Navy records, his ribbons and medals and his family's collection of photographs.

At the time of his death, at the age of 57,  William R. Galloway had almost 40 years of service to the federal government.

Bill Galloway and his wife, Mary, are buried in the Maryland Veterans Cemetery in Cheltenham, Maryland.
