Soldier left Hollywood for Army

Posted: Tuesday, June 08, 2010

FAIRBANKS - People join the Army from all walks of life, but few follow Scott Eberlein's path.

The Los Angeles native was an actor who had a small part in the film "L.A. Confidential" and larger roles in TV shows.

But Eberlein gave up the Hollywood life following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Now a captain stationed at Fort Wainwright, Eberlein had a role earlier this year in a Fairbanks Drama Association production. Eberlein, however, doesn't expect his acting career to include an encore.

He says he joined the Army because of 9/11, but he stays because of the bonds he's made and the friends he's lost in battle.
