Walter Logan Long lived at 745 Rosedale Avenue in Erie when he joined the US Navy for the first time in 1937.  He would enlist again in May 1942 after the United States had entered World War II.

Serving on PT 111, under the command of Lt. John H. Clagett, Seaman First Class Long and his PT squadron were shipped out to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific.  Here the PT boats would see some of the heaviest action of their wartime service.
