"I miss you Scotty..I'm on my way back and was thinking of you. To visitors of this site, here's a short message of Scott's contribution to his Team

" Specialist Scott Mullen was not just a member of the team, but truly an example of how one manís contribution shapes an entire team's personality.

SPC Mullen possess that special combination of expertise, diligence, initiative, most importantly, a sense of humor and positive attitude that was contagious. From developing products, executing face-to-face dissemination operations, and even making Master-Card Priceless posters of various JSOTF-P soldiers, SPC Mullenís made our work fun. He had a unique ability to see humor is any situation, and for that, our team will miss him so very much.
Scottís positive influence will be reflected in all of our products that will be seen, heard, read and felt to over 22 million Filipinos that our team will influence during our rotation here.

As honorable and professional warriors, our team will continue to drive on with our mission, and remember Scott, as well as all of our fellow brothers and sisters in arms that have made the ultimate sacrifice. Rejoice in the fact that he is in a better place without a 1900 curfew and 2-beer limits (he would have insisted I mention that)
Scott, and all of us, have the honor of serving the greatest armed forces in the entire world, for the greatest Nation the world has ever seen and defending FREEDOM, the greatest way of life that we know.

It has been an honor and privilege to be able to work with such a fine young soldier, and I thank his parents for raising such as fine young man, and the Lord for the time that he has allowed Scott to bless us with his influence"

"A message for Scott's parents...

As the father of a serving soldier, I can only say that I am so very proud of the road that Scott and other children have chosen to travel.

In today's hectic times - it's all too easy for us to ignore the call to service and you should find peace in the knowledge that you've done a great job of instilling in your child the desire or the ability to take that road less traveled.

To all those who serve unselfishly in the face of the unknown - people like Scotty - and to all those other brave young men and women throughout time who have served their God, their community or their country, I thank you.

The deeds of our children are apparent and Scotty will be thanked and welcomed in eternity."
Leo Fisher of Las Vegas, NV

"Scotty, you were an awesome friend. We went through some good times together, and some bad times. No matter the situation you always found a way to laugh. Here it is over a month since you left us, and I am just finding out. I went through some Pictures last night, and saw a picture of us ( you, Harris, Mack, and myself) coming out of the Golden Corral with our shaven heads from AIT. It reminded me of how completely random you were, and how you could make almost anyone laugh. you will be missed by many, Samurai steak house wont be the same with out you!"
SPC Adam Fisher of Fort Bragg, NC

"As a mom of five young children, I am so grateful for the sacrifice of this brave solder Army Spc. Scott J. Mullen. You are loved by many. Words can not express the emotion. He payed the ultimate price for our freedom and the freedom of so many other people who suffered under the rule of Sadaam. May God be with his family in this time of sorrow and may you find comfort in the fact that we think about Scott's sacrifice for the love of his country. May we NEVER forget! Thank you!
Jill Hughes of houston Texas"

"Scotty - I miss you so much. You will never be forgotten. You are a hero in all of our eyes. I will always remember the times we spent together. You were such an amazing person. To the Mullens my prayers are with you and I hope you know that my family and I are always here for you. I love you all so much."
Jamilyn of Mesa, AZ/USA

"Scotty, you will be remembered in the hearts and minds of all who knew you. I'm sure that anyone who ever had the chance to spend even a little bit of time with you will remember how you made them laugh. I know I will. Thank you for being such a great friend to Zack and making him feel welcome at POG. I'll never forget the good times at the Warped Tour in Charlotte, even in the pouring rain. I promised you I had the Presidential Suite booked for all of us on that trip (not on our budget!), but now you are in a place that is far more beautiful and luxurious than any hotel room could ever have been. I hope you are shining down on all of us and realizing how many lives you have touched. You will be a constant reminder for me to always have "sweet personality skills."

To Scotty's Family, Friends, and Fellow Soldiers: My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know that it doesn't take away the pain, but take comfort knowing that so many people are forever changed because of Scotty's LIFE, not his death. Soldiers, I am praying for God to protect you as you protect us. My deepest, heartfelt sympathies."

"To Scott's parents,
Your son never let the situation dictate his attitude, he allways let his attitude dictate the situation. He was a glorious being. He loved and laughed often. While away from home we miss our families, but here at FT BRAGG Scott brought friends together and created a family that filled the void of saddness with camping trips, barbques, and sushi dinners. Your son lived as are brother. His soul will live on through all of us never to expire. Thank you for your gift to this world.

To all friends of Scott,
Scott lived a life of love. Friends of such a guy should do the same. His kindness will be felt for eternity, as will his soul.

Scotty,
Thank you for all the vivid memories of camping on the beach and at lake Santeelah. You invited me into your life without question. Your are now in a better place. I will meet up with you some day. Have you tent packed and cooler full."
