Flagstaff, Ariz. Marine works hard, plays hard

Corporal Scott Johnson, a special security representative and systems administrator with Regimental Combat Team 7, lives by a mantra of “Work hard, play hard.” While he loves head-to-head competition, Johnson, a 23-year-old native of Flagstaff, Ariz., has plenty of work to do. “I spend a lot of my day running around like my hair is on fire,” Johnson said. “I’m responsible for making sure everyone (who needs to) can access top secret information.”
