LTC(R) Scott ’61 Enters Georgia Military Veterans Hall of Fame
The Georgia Military Veterans Hall of Fame, located on the capitol grounds, has inducted a 1961 graduate. LTC(R) James Armitt Scott entered on January 29, 2020 before a crowd of 500 well-wishers that included Governor Brian Kemp and other distinguished guests, family members, classmates, and several graduates whom LTC Scott mentored as a USCC tactical officer. The Hall of Fame selected Jim for distinguished valor and service. He is one of the most decorated combat leaders of the Vietnam era. His award citations and witness testimonies describe him as a courageous, yet calm, and humble hero.
Scott was one of 15 veteran finalists among many applicants who served during wartime and distinguished themselves for service or valor. Currently there are 115 veterans in the Hall of Fame.
