The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Navy Cross (Posthumously) to Lieutenant George Fountain Parrott, United States Navy, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished service in the line of his profession on the U.S.S. SHAW, when that vessel was rammed by the steamship AQUITANIA on 9 October 1918. Lieutenant Parrot lost his life on that occasion.

Memorial Hall Error
George is listed as a Commander in Memorial Hall; his Navy Cross lists him as a Lieutenant, and his memorial as a Lieutenant Commander. Suspect Lieutenant Commander is correct.
