The Nelsons

From the beginning my parents taught me that when we work, we work hard, and when we play, we play hard.  Even though it may be over said, the way my parents (John and Mickey) portrayed this was leading by example.  Not only did they exemplify good work ethic, but living this way brought the family closer when we had the opportunities to have fun.  For this, I am thankful because it has helped guide my path both as a civilian and a soldier and taught me great values along the way.  I hope you enjoy our gallery of family fun.  –  Ilyssa Nelson
