Scott Brady Facts
Scott dropped out of high school to enlist in the Navy and got his G.E.D. a couple of years later. At the enlistment station he initially got into the line for the Marines but switched to the Navy when he saw his friends in that line, a decision he thinks saved his life. Similarly, in the Navy he volunteered for gunnery school and was assigned to be a torpedo bomber tail gunner but eventually found himself as a mechanic's mate, another life-saving twist of fate in his opinion.

Scott's father Lawrence Sr. retired to California in the late 1950s and, through his sons, got some work in print advertising.
