MG Patrick H. Brady
Major (later Major General) Patrick H. Brady, U.S. Army, Medical Service Corps, 54th Medical Detachment, 67th Medical Group, 44th Medical Brigade. Near Chu Lai, Republic of Vietnam, 6 January 1968 demonstrated conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. He distinguished himself while commanding a UH-1H ambulance helicopter, by volunteering to rescue wounded men from four sites in enemy held territory all of which were reported to be heavily defended by and in close proximity to the enemy forces. Throughout that day, Major Brady utilized three helicopters to evacuate a total of 51 seriously wounded men, many of whom would have perished without prompt medical treatment. Major Brady’s bravery was in the highest tradition of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army. Major Brady was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery that day. Major General Patrick Brady was inducted into the DUSTOFF Hall of Fame on 17 February 2001.
