Abstract Brady was born on 9 June 1922 in Bingham, Utah. He recalls his childhood, family, and the Depression. Following high school, he took an aircraft mechanics course offered at Hill Air Base and joined the Army Air Corps in 1943. After flight training he trained in B-24s and formed a crew in Boise, Idaho. Assigned to the 406th Bombardment Squadron of the 8th Air Force, 1st Air Division, he dropped propaganda leaflets over the front lines. At the conclusion of the European War he was transferred to Japan for occupation duty, ferrying troops and supplies in C-54s until discharge. He was called up for active duty to participate in the Berlin Airlift and remained in the Air Force, where he was stationed in the United States, Japan, Korea, and Europe. He retired in May 1966.
