Not a day goes by that we don't think about him, and this day would have been his 47th birthday.

Mike and Trevor are joined by some of their brothers-in-arms as they celebrate the life of their friend and former teammate, Senior Chief Scott C. Dayton, who was killed in action on November 24th 2016 while conducting operations in Syria.

Scotty served as a Boatswain's Mate and Rescue Swimmer onboard the USS Pyro, USS Flint, and as a plank-owner of the USS Cole. During his career as a U.S. Navy EOD technician, he served as a SOF enabler with multiple Naval Special Warfare and Army Special Operations units in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and Inherent Resolve.

For those that knew him, Scotty was all about brotherhood and belonging to a tightly knit community, where he was a highly respected and much loved leader, operator, and brother.

He is survived by his wife and children, and a proud tradition of service to something bigger than all of us.

"The true warrior fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."

Rest In Peace brother.
