Betsy, and son William Hunt. It was taken just prior to his departure to take Acree and her crew to war.
(Deborah is Commander Siegmund's grand-daughter and wrote, "I love this picture because it reminds me of the fact that seaman's and officer's families also served our country by being strong, and supporting their husbands and fathers when they went off to war."
