COL (Ret.) Scott Long (1998)

COL (Ret.) Scott Long’s greatest contribution to the Signal Regiment and the Army’s future was his work on the Army Enterprise Strategy, and for this he was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Regiment in 1998. The Enterprise Strategy influences and will continue to influence development of the Army’s command, control, communications, computers and intelligence for many years.

COL Long began his 25-year career in the Signal Corps as platoon leader, 426th Signal Battalion, and then Signal officer for 12th Support Brigade, XVIII Corps, at Fort Bragg, N.C. He later commanded Company C of Long Lines Battalion (North), 1st Signal Brigade, in Korea, then moved to Germany as Signal officer for 3d Battalion, 68th Armor, 8th Infantry Division. He continued with 8th ID as commander of Company C, 8th Signal Battalion. COL Long returned to the United States as assistant professor of military science at Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va., followed by assignment as Signal officer at 197th Infantry Brigade (Separate) (Mechanized) at Fort Benning, Ga. His next assignment was in Australia as the U.S. Army’s exchange officer to the Australian School of Signals. He became assistant inspector general at Fort Gordon, Ga., then the IG, then commanded 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon. He then spent three years at the office of the director for Command, Control, Communications and Computers, where he was chief of the Army Enterprise Strategy Task Force and then chief of Space and Strategic Systems.

The Enterprise Strategy is the Army’s roadmap to integrating the electronic information and communications systems on the future battlefield. The strategy assesses existing C4I systems, provides a migration plan to help shape the Army’s C4I investment strategy and articulates nine specific actions for reshaping Cold War Army information and communications systems. COL Long developed the plan, staffed it throughout the Army, and received Army Chief of Staff approval.

COL Long’s awards and decorations include the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star and Meritorious Service Medal with two oak-leaf clusters.
