Master Sergeant Scott Neil is a veteran Green Beret who served as a Horse Soldier in Afganistan. After enduring several explosions from enenmy forces, he was transferred to Special Operations Command in Tampa, FL. Finding the transition to civilian life to be a tough road, Rob Elder reached out with an opportunity. Learning to build and modify Ford trucks, Elder Ford gained a valuable partner. That’s why they have received their first bottle from the American Freedom Distillery.
One of the most anticipated buisnesses in the bay area is poised to open next month. MSG Neil and three Special Operations veterans have traveled the world to craft the perfect Bourbon. The molds for their bottles were forged from WTC steel, and the logo represnts the Horse Soldier statue at Ground Zero. He is just one of the veterans that Elder Ford has helped to get back on their feet, literally in some cases.
