Semper Paratus by markkarvon Semper Paratus by markkarvon
The HH-65 “Dolphin” is one of the mainstays of the US Coast Guard's Search and Rescue force.This versatile helicopter has proven itself well adapted to the role. Stationed throughout the coastal United States, the Dolphin and her her crews are called upon numerous times each year to rescue those in trouble at sea. In any weather and at any time the men and women of the US Coast Guard unselfishly brave the most perilous of conditions so that others may live. This dramatic print depicts the “Dolphin” in the act of rescuing a sole survivor in the water and is named after the Coast Guard motto, "Semper Paratus" - "Always Ready".

My dad was a Coastguardsman. He died in February this year. I don't have adequate words to describe how much this makes me think of him. He would've loved it. Thank you.

Thanks. A Coast Guard aviator said of the print, "it conveys the true feeling of a specific moment in time".

Best way to memorize time as we know it is art.
