The Bay Area Builders Association raised money and materials to donate a beautiful home in League City for to Scott, his wife Heather, son Rylan and daughter Alexa. KILT’s Hudson and Harrigan were on hand for the ribbon cutting. Texas Gov. Rick Perry and League City Mayor Toni Randall also attended. But this wasn’t a day about politicians and celebrities, it was a day to honor a man with an unbreakable spirit.
Scott first joined the Marine Corps in 1995 and served four years. After his enlistment period was over, he entered the civilian workforce for a couple of years and then moved to Montana to care for his grandmother. Then, when terrorists killed 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001, he re-enlisted in the Corps. When a broken wrist and dislocated knee threatened to keep him from deploying with his troops in Afghanistan, he cut both casts off and managed to convince his superiors that he was ready. After being severely wounded, he once again convinced his superiors that he was capable of finishing his enlistment commitment and remained on active duty while undergoing rehabilitation. Read his remarkable story here.
Scott has now undergone 18 surgeries and has more ahead of him. Not having to worry about a mortgage has certainly made his journey easier. In addition, BABA has raised enough money to pay the property taxes on the home for two years. What a relief that must be to this young family. His wife Heather is a lovely woman and a pillar of strength. His son Rylan, 3, and daughter Alexa, 1, are in good hands.
