He is a retired United States Marine Corps infantry major with 24 years of honorable service, both enlisted and as a commissioned officer. Throughout his numerous deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa he planned, led, and conducted hundreds of combat missions under some of the most austere and challenging conditions. 

Scott is a published author since 2005. His bestselling book, "Echo in Ramadi", is a snapshot in time that changed the face of operations on the battlefield; a captivating story of Echo Company, 2d Battalion, 4th Marines during the Second Battle of Ramadi in support of the Multi-National Forces (MNF) Surge Strategy in 2006. His true-life account provides keen insights into what may be an unfamiliar world to readers, but very familiar to those, like Scott, who lived it and endured this historic fight. Echo in Ramadi was written to honor the sacrifices and spirit of his Marines and the families they supported – it is his tribute to them and his honor to tell this great story.  Readers will feel the pain, emotion, laughter, intensity, and friction that Scott describes in unvarnished detail.

He has been an author for the U.S. Marine Corps doctrine shaping the future of training within the world’s most elite branch of service. He is the creative author for the standard operating procedures for Marine Expeditionary Units, America’s first response force, with The Lightning Press.

Scott dedicates his time to travel to military bases, college programs, veteran organizations, corporate leadership conferences, Gold Star Mothers events, and a multitude of venues to share the story of his epic journey and struggles. He is continually sought out to provide education to active duty units to speak on leadership and his combat experiences—and the importance of writing about them. 

Scott is the Executive Director of Save the Brave, a certified non-profit that connects Veterans through outreach programs—their mission is staying proactive to the needs of the Veterans they serve.  He is also the President of the 2d Battalion, 4th Marines Association, a non-profit that helps Veterans and active duty Marines.
