Colonel Scott St. Sauver

VIDEO:  "A MN approach to helping veterans heal"

Col. St. Sauver is Garrison Commander of Camp Ripley and Commander of the Training Support Unit that is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the 53,000-acre facility.
During a deployment to Iraq in 2005, he foresaw the need to get returning soldiers together with veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the First Gulf War to share the kinds of experiences that are only known to those deployed to war zones. Using Minnesota's outdoor traditions, Col. St. Sauver grew an existing program that brings veterans together using deer hunts and turkey hunts and fishing trips as a means to “heal the mental scars that plague those who serve or have served.”
Col. St. Sauver holds a Masters Degree in Strategic Studies form the United States Army War College as well as Masters Degree in Education from South Dakota State University and also holds a Bachelors of Science Degree in Agriculture and Park Management. He is the recipient of the Bronze Star, and several other medals and commendations.
Col. St. Sauver has been married to Debra for 34 years. They have four children: Christopher, Anthony, Blake and Ashley and eight grandchildren.
