This ad from the February 1945 issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine pays homage to 17-year-old Abbie Burgess who kept the light burning and took care of her invalid mother for four weeks while her father was away. And also honoring the Spars of 1945, who like Abbie “assumed a man’s job to let the Coast Guard men fight the war.” Things have undoubtably changed.
