|Sergeant (Sgt.) Samuel Nelson|
|Birthday||January 16, 1897|
|Family status||Married. Six Children. Five Grandchildren|
Sergeant Sam "Nessie" Nelson acquired his nickname from the legendary lake serpent. He is named after the Loch Ness monster due to his elusiveness, and his ability to be exceptionally motionless. However, like his namesake, he is startlingly quick for a creature of his stature. There is virtuallyno man more committed to the Allied cause than his unappreciated Sergeant, who, at his age and having served in the Great War, could have stayed home with his family.
Personal history Edit
Nelson was born in New York, New York, USA, to a father who worked as a baggage porter at Grand Central Station and a mother who delivered coal by horse and buggy in their neighborhood. He served in the Great War with Harlem's Hell Fighters, one of the few all-black units to see combat and first Allies of any color to reach the Rhine. Regrettably, he had to do so under the command of the French Army.
He has tasted victory once, though it was bittersweet. He fought both the enemy and segregation in the Great War. Yet despite everything that Nessie endured, he willingly for his character. Unfortunately, circumstances would not prove to be much better some twenty years later. Though, he was one of the few African Americans placed in the position of commanding his brothers.
Noteworthy Accomplishments Edit
In exceptional condition for a man of his age and size, Sam Nelson, along with the rest of regiment, was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French for his efforts during WWI.
