Col. Scott Halter has a love for Black Hawk helicopters. But they still haven't quite supplanted his first passion in life: American Quarter horses.
The new commander of the U.S. Army Garrison at Fort Detrick sat down with host Colin McGuire and News-Post health reporter Kate Masters to discuss his unusual path to military service, which included years of raising and riding horses. The leadership skills he developed in the industry eventually led him to join the ROTC program at the University of Virginia, followed by flight school and an assignment with the Army's 82nd Airborne Division.
Halter also described the intricacies of life on base and shared details from his previous assignment in G8 Force Development at the Pentagon. Most importantly, he spilled details on his favorite junk foods and the best places to eat in Frederick.
