Scott was raised on the Delmarva Peninsula in a little hamlet named Hebron in Maryland. At age 11, he began working on a farm and soon after was introduced to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program of America. The program forever changed his life and set him on a path from the Virginia shore to the Iraq desert.

Shortly after graduation, Scott decided to enlist in the Navy. He signed up to join one of the most feared fighting forces in the world, the Navy SEALS. After completing the six-month BUD/S training course in Coronado, California, Scott was assigned to SEAL Team 4 and served in the United States and Latin America, where he developed a fluency in Spanish.

After September 11, Scott chose to re-enlist and in 2005 was sent to Baghdad and Ramadi as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom where he served as a Navy SEAL sniper. While on a combat mission, Scott was severely injured and was Medevac’d out of Iraq to Germany, then eventually back to the States.

In 2013, Scott became a member of the House of Delegates, where he represented the 85th District which is principally the Kempsville and Town Center area in Virginia Beach. With the help of his GI Bill, Scott earned a degree in International Relations from Harvard University Extension and is currently pursuing his masters in the same field. He holds a Master’s Certificate in Government Contracting at Old Dominion University.

In January, 2017, Scott was sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives as Congressman for Virginia’s Second District. He is the first freshman member from Virginia to ever be appointed to the Appropriations Committee for a full term.

As a Member of Congress, one of Scott’s primary goals is to give his constituents a voice on the House Appropriations Committee, which oversees federal expenditures. As a combat veteran, Scott is working to ensure veterans and their families are taken care of, our economy continues to improve, and national security remains a top priority.
