Note: guards SHIELD barber shop secret entrance

The mustachioed gentleman known as "Sam," who guards the barber shop used as a secret entrance to SHIELD headquarters, has also been identified as Joe, Harold and Roscoe. Presumably all of these names are code names. "Sam" might be a code name, too.

The barber shop entrance to SHIELD headquarters, which was long staffed by "Sam," was destroyed by agents of The Corporation in Captain America #s 228 and 228.

In panel 1 on page 5 in Captain America (vol. 1) 161, Sam is bemused at a fight he just witnessed between Captain America and two SHIELD agents. He says: "All this trouble ove one girl... My aunt used to tell me, 'Harold, no woman is worth fighting over' -- and she should know."

Perhaps this means that Sam's real name is "Harold."
