OUR AMERICAN HEROES
SCOTT LEDFORD, North Carolina, USA.
In the mountains of Western North Carolina, Scott grew up with two brothers and three sisters sharing the limited resources their father provided by working two jobs.
Scott set out in the world on his own at a very young age. He worked his way through jobs as a miner in Kentucky to working as a welder on constructions sites across the South East and eventually working for a manufacturing company until retirement. While necessity of a paycheck forced him to move across the country, Scott made sure his family stayed together. He worked 10 hour to 12 hour shifts each day and came home to work in the garden.
Through example he instilled in his children the values of education, honesty, hard work, and above all the benefits of a close knit family. Now retired, Scott enjoys making unique hand made buckles and steel utensils.
