Sergeant John Wayne Nelson II RTD

Sergeant John Wayne Nelson II RTD is a disabled veteran and founder of DELTACOM Coffee. He resides in Turner, Maine. Joining the Marine Corps after high school he was selected to the prestigious Silent Drill Platoon. In the mid-2000s he was deployed to Afghanistan with Delta Company 1st LAR Battalion. After deployment, Sergeant Nelson was stationed at the Mountain Warfare Training Center as a Mountain Leader Instructor for elite Marines.

During his instructor tenure, he successfully summited Mount McKinley (20,310 ft) in Alaska with his fellow instructors. Tragically, a year later he sustained a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury. Since that time Sergeant Nelson's mission has been focused on a map to recovery and finding ways to help other disabled veterans. With DELTACOM Coffee that mission has been completed!
