Photos provided by Daphne Hodder, niece of Dan, Clarence, and Ed Vaughan and daughter of Florence Vaughan. The three sons of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Vaughan all enlisted in the US Navy in 1917. The eldest, Dan, was 20 years old. His brothers, Ed and Clarence, were 19 and 17 years old. Both Ed and Dan served in the Navy as Yeoman, performing administrative duties. Clarence enlisted as an apprentice seaman.

The Vaughan family lived in Marquette Michigan. Before their service Dan worked as a secretary at the Marquette National Bank, Ed worked as a city clerk, and Clarence was still in school.
