Word comes from People.com that Track Palin, the 22-year old son of Todd and Sarah, and Britta Hanson, his 21-year old high school sweetheart, were recently married in in Hatcher Pass, Alaska:
"Our families couldn't be happier!" the Hansons and Palins tell PEOPLE 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."Track, who was deployed in Iraq with a U.S. Army Stryker Brigade for a year, is now in the Army Reserve and plans to enroll at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season. Britta is a U of A nursing student.
The couple will have a larger wedding celebration this winter at Alaska's Alyeska Ski Resort "when extended family and friends from the Lower 48 can travel north for a long ski weekend," says the statement from Sarah and Todd Palin and the Rev. Duane and Elizabeth Hanson.
