History of Dedication

It was U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Scott E. Rutter’s unit, the 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry ‘Cottonbalers’ in the 3rd Infantry Division, which assaulted the Iraqi Special Republican Guard and secured the Baghdad International Airport in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

For this daring maneuver, his unit was broadly recognized and LTC Rutter was decorated with the Silver Star. During Operation Desert Storm, then CPT Rutter commanded C Company, 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry, ‘Rangers’ in the 1st Infantry Division and was decorated with the Bronze Star for Valor in 1991. Scott retired from the US Army after serving over 20 years in Air Assault, Light and Mechanized assignments in the Desert, the Pacific, and in the Continental United States. He served several years overseas and has deployed operationally to Saudi Arabia, Korea, Kuwait and Iraq. Scott also served as a Senior Intelligence Officer with the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Scott spent his next chapter as an executive in the defense industry, where he served as the Senior Director, Mounted Maneuver Programs, U.S. Combat Systems for BAE Systems leading a 500 Million Dollar business area which included U.S. and international programs for over 30 foreign countries to include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Australia, Norway, Taiwan and Pakistan.
