Silhouetted against the setting sun, an F-4 Phanton recovers aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Constellation. The artist tells us that this storied warship was vital to the U.S. effort throughout the Vietnam conflict. "In the summer of 1964," he says, "the 'Connie' took station off the coast of Vietnam with Air Wing Fourteen aboard. She would be assigned to the area on seven separate occaisions. Her final deployment would conclude with combat operations in August, 1973.

On July 1st of that year, she and her crew were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism in action during the 1971-1972 crisis. The Constellation and her proud crew still serve our country today.

"Home is the Hunter" is puublished as a limited edition from the artist's original oil painting and is available in both a print and an artist-enhanced canvas edition.
