Among many other invitational assignments, Trella was at Cape Kennedy for the Apollo 7 Space launch, the work resulting in a cover reproduction of her painting in the United States Naval Institute Proceedings Magazine. Other assignments as a Navy combat artist included the Naval Air Stations, Cecil Field, Florida; Submarine Base, New London, Connecticut; U.S. Naval Base, Charleston, South Carolina, and others. Trella is also a member of the United States Coast Guard Art Program, Washington, D.C., with a recent assignment on board the U.S. Coast Guard cutter, Kickapoo, Vicksburg, Mississippi.
