I am the son of a CIA spy, and a former war reporter (Iraq, Afghanistan) writing about PTSD. AMA.
I'm Scott Johnson, a journalist who covered the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and other conflicts. I am also the son of a CIA spy. I recently wrote a memoir about my experiences as a son and war reporter titled "The Wolf and the Watchman." I now work as a freelance journalist -- my BuzzFeed story on Army medic Nicholas Walker, "How a War Hero Became a Serial Bank Robber" is my latest longform work. Feel free to ask me anything about my wartime experiences, my interactions with my father, my work as a journalist and author, the BuzzFeed piece, PTSD, surfing -- you get the idea. Twitter proof.
