‘When Lightning Followed Thunder’

Art by Dale Byhre

This is a painting depicting the nighttime operation named ‘Lions Den’ on the 27th of August, 1972. It shows the destroyer USS Rowan astern of the USS Newport News (codename ‘THUNDER’) as they maneuver off Haiphong harbor shelling North Vietnamese shore installations and coming under fire from coastal gun batteries.
