THE GLOBAL SCOUT

Scout: A soldier or other person sent out ahead of a main force so as to gather information.


Calling all scouts, warrior-ambassadors, and part-time sex tourists. OAF Nation is showcasing the worldly exploits of past and current veterans who walk the earth like Caine in a quest to find a deeper meaning to life or just have a good time. Veteran wonderers are an icon of American history. Think of the post-World War II motorcycle clubs that filled the void of action-packed service abroad, the retiree and his/her dependents taking advantage of space-A travel and military lodging, or the kooky Vietnam vet sporting the skullet who never left southeast Asia. Veterans and current service members continue this legacy and are encouraged to share their experiences and advice #OAFscout.
