Painting by Dale Byhre
The latest painting in a series depicting naval operations during the war years in Southeast Asia. The destroyer USS Gurke off Haiphong during the Linebacker operations in April of 1972. Here the ship performed duties ranging from gunline fire suppression to search and rescue, which lead to frequent encounters with NVA shore batteries.
