At age 2, Scott Lieng and his mother escaped a Cambodian prison camp in the middle of the night. With nothing but the clothes on their backs, they entered the U.S. and began to rebuild their lives. Growing up, Scott always had a sense of service. America had given so much to his family that he felt a strong pull to enter the Naval Academy after his high school graduation. The Navy has widened Scott’s perspective on life and its diversity has allowed him to meet more people than he could have ever imagined. With a family of his own now, Scott impacts the people around him through his role as a Supply Corps Officer. After Scott has served his time, he plans to go back to Cambodia and build schools to help provide educational opportunities for children.
