About the Author
MAJOR GENERAL (RET) PAT BRADY served over 34 years in the Army in duty stations across the world: In Berlin during the building of the Wall; as commander of the DMZ in Korea, in the Dominican Republic; in the Pentagon as chief spokesman for the Army and for 2 years in Viet Nam. In two tours in Viet Nam he rescued over 5000 wounded and flew over 2500 combat missions. He is identified in the Encyclopedia of the Viet Nam War as the top helicopter pilot in that war and is one of two Viet Nam soldiers to earn both the Medal of Honor and the Distin- guished Service Cross, our nation's second highest award. Some pundits also identify him as the most decorated living veteran. His awards include: Two Distinguished Service Medals; the Defense Superior Service Medal; the Legion of Merit; six Distinguished Flying Crosses; two Bronze Stars, one for valor; the Purple Heart and 53 Air Medals, one for valor. He is a member of both the Army Aviation and Dust Off Halls of Fame. Brady is a former president of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society and a past Commis- sioner of the Battle Monuments Commission during the construction of the WWII memorial. General Brady has a bachelor's degree in psychology from Seattle University and an MBA from Notre Dame University.

General Brady's writing demonstrates a genuine humility perfectly blended with undiminished passion for his faith, a loyalty to those he served with and love of country. In addition the reader is treated to commentary on the Vietnam War's progress not found in too many books.
"Dead Men Flying" is an especially important read as a leadership primer for anyone who has authority over others, but is particularly critical for junior officers and NCOs.

Each chapter tells of a problem encountered and how it was resolved in order to maintain a record of rescuing a patient on the battlefield and delivering the patient to a hospital in record time during the "golden hour".
Some chapters tell of individual experiences of Dust Off personnel as well as the problems encountered in maintaining effective communication of the Dust Off operation up the chain of command.
The reader will conclude that at the front line level we are blessed to have such outstanding soldiers who's leadership and commitment to the Mission, despite severe personal disappointments, is in the highest tradition of our military service.
