“I am very excited to have been elected to Chair the Impact a Hero Board,” says Doug Hall. “Our organization has done, and will continue to do, great things for the veterans’ community. 2017 was a tough year for many with Hurricane Harvey and the financial challenges it has brought our community.

Bruce and his wife Janet live in Sugar Land, TX and have two daughters and one granddaughter.
“It’s truly an honor to be selected to serve on the Impact a Hero Board of Directors. My appreciation for our veterans’ service and sacrifice continues to grow with each person I meet and each story I hear,” says Bruce. “I have made it my personal mission to connect wounded (or combat) veterans and their families to the people searching for a way to get involved and give back to our country’s heroes.”
Scott Livingston currently serves as Senior Vice President, Global Operations, for NOV Rig Systems. His responsibilities encompass all of Rig Systems’ onshore and offshore production, supply chain, and engineering organizations and capabilities worldwide along with the well-servicing business.

“I’m extremely honored to join the board of Impact a Hero and have the opportunity to work with a great group of professionals in serving our wounded combat veterans,” says Scott. “I’m deeply impassioned with the mission to provide assistance and resources towards helping these courageous men and women lead purposeful lives, despite their previous challenging circumstances.
