Raised in Beaumont and Houston Texas, parents divorced at the age of six. Got in plenty of trouble growing up, but nothing too serious, kicked out of school in the 9th grade was the worst. Worked construction jobs in Houston for the next 2 1/2 years, mainly as a frame carpenter. Joined the U.S. Army in 1982 three months prior to my 18th birthday after having to obtain a GED, having tested at a college freshman level. Spent 20 years on active duty in various radio communications capacities, mainly stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C. and in Germany, but having deployed to several other global locations. Retired from active duty in early 2002 from USAJFKSWCS at Ft. Bragg. Moved immediately to San Antonio and after a short time and had a difficult time adjusting to civilian life and work. The war in Iraq broke out in 2003 and was offered a contract job there, which began a series of jobs in both Iraq and Afghanistan spanning nearly a decade. Currently living in Thailand, trying my best to help save the country of my birth, that I still love dearly, from itself, from afar.

I am Scott Marbut

National Secretary

Scott was born in Missoula, Montana in 1965. Scott graduated from Flathead High School in Kalispell, Montana in 1985. Scott joined the military in Butte, Montana in 1984 on the delayed entry program. Scott's first unit was US Army Reserves, as a Water Purification Specialist in Kalispell, Montana. Scott attended University of Montana 1985-1986. Scott joined the active duty Army in 1986. Scott is currently working on my Masters in Education and he hopes to be a school teacher one day.

Scott is a 5th generation Montanan, and has traveled around the state prior to joining the military. Scott's Grandfather was a Montana State Senator and ran for Montana Lieutenant Governor in 1968. Scott's Father has worked in the Montana Legislature for nearly 20 years. Scott just retired from the US Army in 2011 after 26 years. Scott's last 20 year's in the Army were in Special Forces (Green Beret's). Scott is an OEF, and OIF Veteran and has spent 36 months in combat.

Scott is married and has 4 children. Scott's step-daughter living in Bozeman, Montana and a Graduate of Montana State University. Scott's oldest son is in the US Navy. Scott has two grandsons with one on the way in 2016. Scott has two sons from his second marriage.

Scott is passionate about preserving States Rights over Federal intervention. Scott's Grandfather stated that your rights end when your fist touches the end of his nose. Meaning that in our big State we should be free to do as much as possible, and not have to follow big city rules, and laws only define when two different rights conflict. Your liberty is to do what you will until it impacts another citizen. Our country's liberties have eroded, and the US Military has taken the brunt of the attacks. Scott wants to preserve freedom so his children and his grandchildren can enjoy Montana, the way he did as a child. The preservation of personal liberty is best preserved at the most local government, as this gives the voter easy access to responsible government.

I have been married for 33 years to the same loving man. I have 2 grown children and 3 beautiful Grandchildren. It is for my Grandchildren and their children that I devote the majority of my time to the Veterans Party of America. We must save our Great Country for future generations. I do not ever want my grandchildren to ask me: Grammy, what was it like to have Freedom? We must make the changes now before it is too late for our country to be saved.

The two party system has become one party. They NO LONGER represent WE THE PEOPLE. It is time for a new party to be part of our Government to restore the true checks and balances. To make sure WE THE PEOPLE are the interests of our Government. Big businesses, lobbyist nor foreign government should be catered to before the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

My parents raised me to love my country and respect my Government. But when my Government stops respecting me and stops representing me, it is time for a change. We elect THEM the REPRESENT US, NOT EVERYONE ELSE BUT US.
