Sarah Palin's Soldier Son Marries Nursing Student


Reality TV star and former Governor Sarah Palin saw her eldest son, Track, marry his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, in a small ceremony held very recently in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.

"Our families couldn't be happier!" the Hansons and Palins told in a joint statement. "These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We're tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed."

"The Hanson and Palin families are ecstatic and proud that Britta and Track married in one of our favorite spots in America, spectacular Hatcher Pass, Alaska," the statement continued. "It's a site we've all shared fun memories of skiing, snowboarding, hiking and snowmachining."

Britta, 21, and Track, 22, have been dating since high school. Track, now an Army Reservist after spending a year deployed in Iraq with a Ft. Wainwright Stryker Brigade, plans to continue his education at the University of Alaska, where Britta is currently a nursing student.
