Scott Owens

Hometown: Oilmont, Montana

Rank: Sargent
Unit Designation: Iraq
Branch of Service: National Gaurd
Years of Service: 5

Scott Owens served in Iraq and took the time to learn their language before he went over, as well as served in Boznia guarding mass grave sites while those who passed were being claimed by family members who survived their deaths. Any one who takes the time to learn about another country's language before they go there to carry out orders to fight for the rights of others shows that they respect those that may or may not agree with our decision to be there, and for that reason Scott is a real hero who sought no glory for himself.
