Open-House, 1945
Comments by Ari Phoutrides

Another picture from the Admiral's memorabilia.  This gives you some idea as to the size of the
crowds that visited the ship during its three day open house.  The crew - excluding me, of course -
would seek out advantageous locations and watch the attractive women come on board.  It was a
harmless past time and a very natural reaction to not having seen a woman for a good eight months.
