Brent has spent the last thirty years amassing the largest civilian-owned operational military equipment and technical manual library in the nation. He is known worldwide as a leading expert in historical US military hardware. His expertise in both military hardware and memorabilia has become highly sought after, providing appraisals for both private and museum military collections.
Brent, having participated as a reenactor and vendor in military events for more than 30 years, provides the overall vision and the direction for the Living History Weekend. His primary role, beside the physical site preparation, is the direction and supervision of the reenactment and military vehicle display. He developed and coordinates a program, The Armored Support Group, to train volunteers to maintain and safely operate the museum’s vehicle collection.
