Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Scott Wealing | 151st Infantry Detachment (LRS) - Army

5:48   |   After a couple of years as a drill sergeant at Fort Benning, Scott Wealing became interested in a long range surveillance unit he'd heard about. He had to lose rank to join the elite unit. Not a problem. It was worth it, although he wasn't crazy about the jumps.

    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.
