We salute my nephew PFC Joshua Nelson who always beats the odds. He has faithfully overcome challenges in his path but one thing has stayed constant - He wanted to be a servant to his country and to God. He could have gone in any direction but this past year he chose the path of a soldier in the United States Marines. His family is so proud of him and our prayers are with him.
