Grandfather: Philip Webster Martin
Enlisted in the Army Air Corp (before Air Force) after turning 30 years old...because the war needed him! My Hero!
My Father: William Edgar Elliott
Faithfully served for 10 years in our US Navy
His health issues today and skin cancer are attributed to his years out to sea
witnessing ocean-water/bomb testing and long hours in the sun! My Hero!
My Brother: William Philip Elliott
Faithfully served in the US Marines both stateside and overseas! More than proud
of my only brother! During his service he saw a friend lose both his legs in a Philippines training accident...and more than I can share. My Hero!
My Son: Brandon Kent Nelson
Faithfully served three years in the US Air Force. Stationed stateside as a computer programmer in Omaha. His military service and training helped change the course of his life! My Hero!
My Son-in-Love: Michael James Weigel
Faithfully served in the US Army during war time, both in Iraq and
Afghanistan. He's seen it all...and barely escaped with his life. My Hero!
Today we are honoring the men and women (my Aunt Ethel Elliott Wiser/un-pictured, also served as a Naval Wac in WWII) during both war time and peace.
Thank you for your bravery, service,commitment to our country and for risking your lives for us all.
Each of you have ensured our freedom and the freedom of our nation!
Love You Most...
