Israelson finishes mechanical training
Army Pvt. Tyler O. Israelson has graduated from the Light-wheeled Vehicle Mechanic Advanced Individual Training course at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C.

The course is designed to train soldiers to perform maintenance, troubleshoot, and repair wheeled vehicles and related mechanical components.

This includes internal combustion engines and power trains, spark- and compression-ignition engines, wheel-hub assemblies, hydraulic-power brakes, suspension and steering systems, and learned to operate a wheeled vehicle crane, hoist, and winch assembly.

He is the son of Ted T. and Sunny L. Israelson of Juneau, and is a 1998 graduate of Juneau Douglas High School.
