In 2007, while serving in combat, MSG Nelson was injured by a suicide Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast during a convoy through Kabul, Afghanistan.  Against all odds, MSG Nelson survived. For the next three years he and his family endured 43 lifesaving and reconstructive surgeries and hours of physical therapy. In 2010, MSG Nelson medically retired from military service.
