Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Major Gen. Patrick Brady is the author of “Dead Men Flying.” His talk features the Bell UH-1 Iroquois “Huey” Patrick Brady assumed command of Detachment A of the 57th Medical Detachment after the previous commander, Major Charles Kelley, had been KIA. Upon his second tour in Vietnam, Brady served as second in command of the 54th Medical Detachment. On January 6, 1968 his actions earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor. The citation ends with: “Throughout that day Maj. Brady utilized 3 helicopters to evacuate a total of 51 seriously wounded men, many of whom would have perished without prompt medical treatment. Maj. Brady's bravery was in the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.”
The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation brought their Huey from Atlanta, GA to Oshkosh, in support of General Brady’s appearance.
