Sgt Scott Douglas Sather
Birth: Jun. 21, 1973
Genesee County
Michigan, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 2003, Iraq

Air Force Staff Sgt. Sather was assigned to the 24th Special Tactics Squadron, Pope Air Force Base, North Carolina, but his home base was Hurlburt Field in Florida. Scott was a 1991 graduate of Clio High School where he played football and baseball. He joined the Air Force in 1992 and served in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. He received the Bronze Star Medal and also had earned four Air Force combat medals, an Air Medal and a Joint Service Medal. Scott was a special operations combat controller trained to set up special runways and liked to be the "do" man. Combat controllers are an elite group of fighters who lead allied aircraft to enemy targets. There are only about 300 controllers, a group that had not suffered a war casualty until last year. These airmen, whose slogan is "First There," are trained in parachuting, scuba diving and combat survival as well as air traffic control. Scott was well loved by everyone very outgoing and just a great person. He loved to play practical jokes on another airman named Eggers, hiding eggs in his boots, and then slipping away. Eggers never found out who was doing it. In his free time, Scott enjoyed riding and working on his motorcycle. He leaves behind his wife, Melanie.
