Horse soldier turns whiskey distiller

Scott Neil, visited Great Day Live to tell his story

After 9/11 the first soldiers to enter Afghanistan had to do so on horseback. It was a tough mission, but the Green Berets who took the call did it bravely and with honor. Their story was commemorated in the 2018 movie ‘12 Strong.’ One of the 12, Scott Neil, visited Great Day Live to tell his story. When his time with the Army came to an end, he and some of his comrades started American Freedom Distillery here in Tampa Bay.
