From the 1946 Lucky Bag:
Lewis Warner Adkins, Jr.
The son of a Naval officer, Lew came to the Academy with a knowledge—as the plebes can testify—and love of the service and the sea. Conscientious and filled with a determination which became even more intense as exam weeks approached, he could be depended on to do a job right. Taut sails and many hours on the soccer field occupied his free time. Just as Lew was still game after the smoke had cleared from his room at the end of study hour, when the smoke of battle is blown away, he will be there waiting for the next round.
The Class of 1946 was graduated in June 1945 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
