Title: Actress Doris Day
Description: Waiting on the dock to greet the anti-aircraft cruiser U.S.S. Juneau on its recent return to Long Beach, Calif., from the Far East was the lovely Warner Brothers' star, Doris Day. During Miss Day's three hour visit aboard the Juneau she was escorted by a 16 man host committee, made up of a representative of each division aboard ship. Doris was guest of honor at dinner in the crew's mess hall and spent time visiting with crew members as she made her tour of the veteran cruiser. She is pictured here holding a bouquet of red roses just presented to her by Bernie W. Boyer, PN3, left ..., on behalf of the Juneau crew. The bouquet was made up of 16 roses, one representing each division aboard ship. James E. Stanford, SN, ... looks on. (Quoted from original caption) This photo is not dated, but was published in All Hands magazine's January 1953 issue. USS Juneau (CLAA-119) had two Korean War tours, returning to Long Beach on 1 May 1951 from the first and on 5 November 1952 from the second. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, from the All Hands collection at the Naval History and Heritage Command.
