From The U.S. Coast Guard:

Semper nostra optima
quote:

After nearly 45 years of service to the nation, Coast Guard Cutter Dallas is being decommissioned. From performing naval gunfire support missions off Vietnam to being the command ship during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift, Dallas has truly seen it all. As Dallas is decommissioned, a new fleet of national security cutters are coming on the line to protect and serve our nation. They stand at the ready to perform homeland security missions at sea, just as Dallas did for decades.

This is the the final post in our series honoring Dallas as it sails its final patrol and serves as a tribute to Dallas’ sailors who were “Semper nostra omina,”￾ Always our best.
