USCGC Dallas Commemorative Profile Drawing

USCGC Dallas Commemorative Profile Drawing by George Bieda“Semper Nostra Optima” - Always Our Best, has been the guiding motto of the officers and crew of USCGC Dallas WHEC 716 for nearly 45 years. She is  the second ship of the Hamilton Class. This classy lady is scheduled to be decommissioned on 30 March 2012, and has been “sold” to the Philippine Navy, as was her sister ship, ex-USCGC Hamilton. Recently, her mission was primarily drug interdiction, but also included Homeland Security operations. From NOV 1969 till JUN 1970 she was part of Squadron Three, which served in Vietnam. Her service there included both military and humanitarian operations. This commemorative profile drawing shows her as she looks today, and was produced by our naval profile artist, George Bieda. This image area of this print is 12" x 18", printed on a 13" x 19" sheet.  We use only heavy-weight, acid-free, archival paper for our prints to ensure many years of enjoyment.
