Writings about the Dyess

  "Dedication" from Lt. J.G. Richard A. Leahy, USN


To different people a warship means different things. To the people who build her she is a series of work orders, contracts and deadlines. To the people of our nation who see her in newsreels and magazines, she's a symbol of our national strength; To mothers and wives and sweethearts she is the dreaded craft that takes her loved ones away. But to the men who live on her; who sail on her; who eat and work and play and fight and sometimes die on her, she is much more. To them, whether they love or hate her, she is a way of life, a home, a cargo of memories. It is to these men that this web site is respectfully dedicated.

Lt. J.G. Richard A. Leahy, USN
