Sergeant Scott Harrison passed away from cancer.
When Sergeant Scott died of lung cancer, Rossi canceled the fishing trip with his daughter and grandson, and immediately flew to Los Angeles. Once on the West Coast, Rossi paid for a military funeral with full honors for Scott’s son, Thomas, Thomas’ wife, and their son.
Many of the members of Scott and Rossi’s Vietnam platoon showed up to pay their respects. At the end of the episode, we saw a flashback of Scott giving Rossi a Purple Heart award. Rossi solemnly placed it on Scott’s casket, along with an aged photo taken of their platoon. He walks away with his daughter, hand-in-hand, who showed up to support him.
