Corporal Matt "Matty'" Graham was a Black Hawk Loadmaster with 5th Aviation Regiment, but with the deployment of CH-47D Chinooks to the Middle East during 2003, he was allocated as a gunner/loadmaster on the Chinooks as part of Battle Crew 3.

Upon return to Australia, Matt requested a portrait to commemorate his service and this was the product.
