Sea Stallion Helo-Ha - by Tom Thordarson of THOR ART - Here is a tribute to some brave messengers of ALOHA. The crews & squadrons of the CH-53D Sea Stallion Helicopters from Hawaii just before this historical Helicopter was retired. I was commissioned by the U.S Marines, many that also collect my work in Hawaii, to consider doing a creative interpretation focused on these "Marines in the sky" from the Islands, enduring the heated sands of the Middle East. They needed something to dream of.
