Brewer donated all his royalties from this books first printing to The National Veteran's Foundation; and a portion of the proceeds from the second printing to the Sky Soldier's memorial.   
He currently resides in an A frame tucked way back into the Finger Lakes National Forest in Upstate, New York.
He describes himself, above all else, as a Father, a Son, an American and a Vietnam Veteran.
