I used to see COL Scott on a daily basis while he was at the smoke pit behind the "Barn" on MNSTC-I. He was an amazing person who had a vast amount of knowledge to share. Being a junior NCO it is not typical for a “full bird” COL to have a candid conversation with an enlisted member. I am honored to have worked with him and the US Army truly lost on of their best. Rest in Peace Warrior and may God be with your family.

We were able to spend every possible moment together and I was there to kiss you goodbye before you left on your Angel Flight. You will be in my Heart and a part of me forever. Always Yours, Angelina
