Writings about the Dyess

  1954 Cruisebook Dedication


To the Officers and Crew--

With respect and appreciation for their loyalty and service, and in all humility, I dedicate this cruisebook to the man-o'-war's-men of the United States Ship DYESS.

Inevidably we shall be detached from the DYESS and go our several ways. Until we meet again, this log will bridge the gap and serve as a vivid reminder of our shipmates and friends, our voyages together, and our days afloat. Our bonds our forged of sturdy stuff; we have shared angry seas, challenging tasks, good times. As we go forward, may our oars keep time while our voices keep tune.

Smooth sailing and Godspeed.

God bless you all:



John E. Dacey

Commander, U.S. Navy
