Notable events involving Dallas include:
9 Nov 1942
Port-Lyautey, Morocco On the night of 9–10 November 1942 a tactical innovation involving the Navy raised American spirits. On the Sebou River the destroyer-transport Dallas pushed aside a barricade and sneaked upstream with a raider detachment to spearhead the assault on thelocal airfield. On the river the Dallas passed a gauntlet of artillery fire and debarked the raiders on the east side of the airfield. (1)
