Little is known about SPS2 Elizabeth Ann Speed, except that she is shown in the Navy muster roles for November 1, 1947 in Barracks, West Potomac Park, Washington DC. She is also shown at a rate of Personnelman2c 0n the Veteran's gravesite list in Ancestry. The nearest match on the SSDI shows her born July 30, 1921 and death on January 20, 2003 in Lakeland, Florida. If the SSDI listing is correct, she apparently never married.

Her bar mounted medal group includes her officially impressed and named Navy Good Conduct medal dated 1948 with 3 stars, American Campaign medal, WW2 Victory medal, and American Defense medal. The GCM indicates that she had at least 16 years of service, and probably enlisted in 1944.
