About Perry:

Scott Perry served three terms as a Pennsylvania State Representative. While serving there, he was assigned to the Committees on Appropriations, Consumer Affairs, Labor Relations, Veterans Affairs, Emergency Preparedness, and Rules. He became the Congressman for Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District in 2013. He earned re-election to the newly-redistricted 10th District in 2018, and presently serves on the U.S. House Committees on Transportation & Infrastructure, and Foreign Affairs. 

He put himself through college while working a full-time job, and graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1991, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in Business Administration Management.

Perry began his military service when he enlisted in 1980. He attended basic training at Fort Dix, N.J., and graduated advanced individual training at Fort Belvoir, Va., as a technical drafting specialist. He graduated as the president of his Officer Candidate School and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Field Artillery branch. He soon branch-transferred to Army Aviation, where he earned qualifications in almost every aircraft in the Army’s rotary wing inventory, as well as the Instructor Pilot rating. 

He commanded at the company, battalion and brigade levels; then-Lieutenant Colonel Perry commanded the 2-104th General Support Aviation Battalion, which deployed to Iraq from 2009-2010, during which he flew 44 combat missions. In 2011, he was promoted to the rank of Colonel, became Commander of the Fort Indiantown Gap National Training Site, and was selected to attend the United States Army War College, from which he earned a master’s degree in Strategic Studies. Perry was selected for promotion to the rank of Brigadier General in 2014 and served as the assistant division commander of the 28th Infantry Division – the Army’s oldest, actively serving Division. After serving in his final position as the Assistant Adjutant General, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, Brigadier General Perry retired in March 2019, upon nearly 40 years of military service.

Scott and his wife, Christy, are the parents of two daughters.
