Historian JD Marshall penned, ‘History is shaped by the memories of those who witness it, and the intentions of those who record it.’

Vietnam veteran Hiawatha Oakes wrote, ‘I can’t thank you enough for your efforts in obtaining a photo of my H-21, the Blue Angel, and having it in your book (Vietnam War Army Helicopter Nose Art).

‘My family calls your book, “…lost pieces of treasures found.”’

These three quotations represent all that is relevant to the author in history gathering: the hard work and its rewards.

John Brennan has authored six Vietnam War helicopter books. His background in this subject began with a twelve-month military tour in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region assigned to the Army’s 114th Assault Helicopter Company as a flight operations coordinator. This was followed by a B.A. degree in American Studies from California State University at Chico. He was subsequently hired by the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum Library in Washington, DC. Later, when the 114th formed an association, Brennan served as a historian. Today, he is retired from federal service and resides with his family in Northern California.
