"HOME WAS NEVER LIKE THIS: Things are just ‘sew, sew’ — At sea, A Coast Guardsman is a versatile chap, adept with ropes, winches, paint brushes and even the needle. Here, Coast Guardsman Harold J. Adams, Seaman First Class, does some ‘fancy work’ on a piece of canvas, while the curious puppy mascot, aptly named ‘Nosey’ climbs on his shoulder to see what goes on. The man and the dog are shipmates on a Coast Guard-manned LST somewhere in the Pacific. Adams is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harris A. Adams, of … New Orleans, LA. His father is a Coast Guard Chief Machinist’s Mate with 25 years in the service."
