Air Force Colonel from Lawrence County assigned to the Pentagon

Kristopher “Scot” Terry has served in the United States Air Force for 24 years and will begin his next assignment in Washington D.C.

Air Force Col. Kristopher “Scot” Terry, formerly of Lawrence County, has been assigned to the United States Air Force Headquarters at the Pentagon. 

Terry will serve as the reserve advisor to the deputy chief of staff, and as the directorate of logistics, engineering and force protection, Lt. Gen. Richard Scobee announced earlier this month.

He currently serves as the commander of the 919th Special Operations Maintenance Group in Duke Field, Florida. 

The 1990 Lawrence County High School graduate said he is honored to be selected for the three-year assignment.

“My body may be in (Washington) D.C., but my heart will always be in Lawrence County,” Terry said.

Terry graduated from the University of South Alabama in 1995 and has served in the Air Force for 24 years.

His parents, Bill and Gloria Terry, say they are proud of Scot for his accomplishments and wish him the best as he continues to serve at the nation’s capital.
