The Generosity of Scars

Scott Mann has spent his twenty-three year Army Special Forces Career involved in Foreign Internal Defense, Counter-insurgency, and Stability Missions all over the world.

Scott has served in the Special Operations Community for over 18 years and has been a Green Beret for over 15 years. During that time Scott spent over 10 years in 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) where he served in a variety of Foreign Internal Defense and combat deployments in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Since retirement, Scott founded and is the Chief Executive Officer of the Stability Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to brokering knowledge and connecting stability professionals on complex stability issues around the globe.

Scott is also a real-estate entrepreneur of a multi-million dollar portfolio and Founder/CEO of Patriot Families, A non-profit organization committed to helping military families and wounded veterans at a grass-roots level cope with the rigors of military deployments and family stress.

His TedexTalk about how your darkest struggle can be your greatest gift to those you lead…if you are willing to pay the price is inspiring. What a warrior and fighter for LIFE. It inspires me to open up more about my own scars of growing up in a war zone and being in transition between American and Ireland for so many years.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
