From Kristi Nelson 04/03/07:

My husband was a very courageous man and very proud of what he was doing. I am so proud of him I don't think words can express. 

He wanted to do this ever since he was a young boy and he felt he should do his part for living in America. He told me many things that really touched my heart about him in the military. 

Just to share one that he shared with me before he deployed. He told me " Baby, don't worry I am coming home to you, no matter what. But I have to go because I have to relieve those other soldiers who have been over there for their year tour and it's now my turn to take over." 

He was just such an amazing person and soldier. I could probably go on about him for days and days. He did what he loved and I know that he was EXTREMELY happy doing his job. 

He was my whole world and I miss him more than anyone will ever know but the thing that helps me most is knowing how much he loved being an American Soldier. He died along side 2 of his brothers SPC Aaron L. Preston and SGT John T. Bubeck. May they find peace in heaven and may God rest their souls.
