Eyes on the Ground - Transcript

Speaker: My name's Pfc. Alley, and I'm a cavalry scout in the United States Army. We go ahead of the front line and gather information on enemy activity and personnel. For a 21-year-old guy, I have a pretty darn important job. We're the eyes and the ears of the Army.

As a cavalry scout, you overlook enemy activity, and you do it all without being seen. Being part of that team, you're only as strong as your weakest link. I take care of my men. I'm the front line before the front line. Three years ago, I was just getting out of high school. I definitely made the right decision by joining the cavalry. You learn a lot of responsibility, you get paid and you're helping serve your country. Not too many people can do this job. Scouts out.
