Born and raised in Chicago, Scott Morgan had five older brothers growing up. Being the youngest, he says he was constantly being picked on, which drove him to enlist with the Army at 17-years-old.
He dropped out of high school and would be sent overseas to Korea for a full year. After two more years back in the states, his service would come to an end.
He’s now a maintenance mechanic, and spends a lot of time rebuilding and refurbishing things around the house.
