" I visited there last weekend and I really liked it there,"said Nelson. "Everyone was so nice, and it was a place that I felt like I could call home for the next few years."
Nelson had to decide between Northern Iowa and making a bigger commitment to a future in the Military.
"In the end it came down to Northern Iowa and Air Force," Nelson added. "The Air Force Academy offered me, but I had not really thought about a future in the Air Force before, so that was something I had to think about. In the end I made the right choice with Northern Iowa."
