The ringer for this first ever event for the GI Film Festival actor Scott Elrod, recently seen in the film Argo and soon to appear in Lone Survivor alongside Mark Wahlberg. Son of an F-16 pilot, Scott followed in the footsteps of his father and served in the United States Air Force as an air traffic controller from 1994-2000.
