Brother Nelson, you will never be forgotten, I think of you often. Class 252 - 6th Platoon, custody, softball, etc. we always rocked it. I visited the LE Memorial in Washington DC recently, and said a prayer for you and your family. Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice back then, 24 years ago, miss you brother. God Bless you and thank you for watching our backs. Always in our hearts.
