Medal of Honor Recipient Patrick Brady


Major General Pat Brady flew over 2500 combat missions as a “Dust Off” air ambulance pilot in Vietnam. With his crew, he rescued over 5000 men. Recognized with the Medal of Honor for his bravery at the risk of his own life, he is one of our nation’s heroes. He’s also a devout Catholic.

We’re honored to feature General Brady in this episode, where he discusses how his faith guided him on the battlefield, finding meaning in life after an exciting career in the military, and why he thinks courage is one of the most important virtues we can foster.

Many thanks to General Brady and all those who have put their life on the line at the service of our nation.
