We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Capt. Nielson, and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of freedom and liberty. Sadly, America has lost one of its finest heroes, the U.S. has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage, which they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Capt Nielson has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.
To the family and friends, of Capt. Nielson, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to carry on. Just as you were always with him when he was deployed overseas, know that he will always be with you wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Capt. Nielson was a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid, they have earned our undying gratitude. America will never, ever forget their sacrifices."
Capt. Nielson the flag of the United States of America has your blood sewn into the fabric; it shall wave forever in your honor.
Freedom requires sacrifice the protected will never know.
