Uss Carl Vinson
Painting - Watercolor
Strength from the Sea
The seal of USS Carl Vinson shows an eagle, wings spread and talons extended, carrying a banner in its beak. The eagle is emblematic of the nation and the ships motto, and also represents the power that resides in the ships aircraft. The eagle flies in the form of a stylized letter �V�, the initial of the ship�s namesake, Congressman Carl Vinson. The �V� also represents the ships hull when viewed bow-on. Inscribed on the banner the eagle carries is the Latin phrase �Vis Per Mare� which means �Strength from the Sea�.
USS Carl Vinson returns to Bremerton, Washington September 2003 assisted by Andrew and Arthur FOSS. Wear and tear on the huge ship was evident. Continually at sea for months, the vessel & crew were looking forward to this return to homeport.
