Scott Wealing | Multiple Units - Army

4:48   |   He was just not cut out to be a farmer. Scott Wealing did not take over the family farm in Indiana but instead enlisted in the Army and was immediately deployed to Desert Storm. The support unit may have been the worst outfit in the military but he was very impressed with General Schwarzkopf.

    Scott Wealing was in an Air Force Pararescue unit when 9/11 changed everything. He had to switch to EOD when he was injured but then he was recruited by Blackwater and went to Iraq where he was part of the American ambassador's security team. His next stop was the CIA, where he was part of a global response team.

    When he was at the CIA annex in Afghanistan, Scott Wealing found out his old unit was stationed right down the road. He took them some special treats and let them use the CIA shooting range for a little fun. He has other friends who were involved in the Blackwater bridge incident in Iraq which, in his mind, was totally preventable.
