A Veterans Day Tribute

This is a shout-out to all veterans, young and old. I want to thank each and every one of you for your service. You have preserved our rights, all of them, and it is my promise not to take those rights for granted.

I would like to take a moment to honor some of my favorite veterans:

My father, George F. Studley

My uncles:
Harold Studley
Robert Studley
Russell Studley

My brother-in-law, Mark Nelson
My father-in-law, Leif Nelson

My father-in-law is a highly decorated WWII veteran, and is also the only one on my list that is still with us today.
Most of you know that I have 3 kids that are currently active duty military. They are:

Samantha Nelson, US Navy, Virginia
Eric Nelson (and his wife Toshia), US Air Force, Korea
Rex Nelson (and his wife Deja), US Navy, Japan

I would like to honor them, as well, as they are our future vets. We love you guys!

Happy Veterans Day!
