Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Scott Sullivan. Scott served from 1997 to 2006 as a physician assistant.
Scott attended 2 ½ years of college before joining the military. He was subsequently trained as a physician assistant. His first duty station was at Ft. Hood, Texas. He was deployed one year after the invasion of Iraq began.
As a physician assistant, Scott was faced with 10 to 20 patients to care for at a time. On April 4, 2004, Scott helped to care for 65 patients over the course of the night. He was honorably discharged from the Army in 2006. Upon Scott’s return, he began to work in an emergency room before transferring to a family medicine practice.
After his time serving, Scott became involved with Operation Song. Operation Song connects Veterans with song-writers to discuss issues with PTSD. Scott and Reggie Hamm wrote the song, “We Got Lucky,” which is now available for download. “We Got Lucky” and other projects through Operation Song have helped Veterans become more comfortable talking about PTSD.

Thank you for your service, Scott
