  • Final Mission of CPL Michael W. Johns

    Posted on 11/29/15 - by
    During the Tet Offensive by NVA and VC forces the enemy launched attacks against a number of U.S. and Vietnamese government installations. On February 6, 1968, a PF patrol (unit of Vietnamese Popular Forces) was attacked by the enemy near the Tuy Loan River northwest of Cobb Bridge in the Hieu Duc District of Quang Nam Province. Suffering heavy casualties, a call went out for assistance to which a two-platoon reaction force from Headquarters & Service (H&S) Company responded. Arriving at the scene of the battle, the Marines also came under heavy enemy fire, suffering five men killed in the action and eight wounded before the enemy was routed. The lost Marines included PFC James L. Fuchs, LCPL Wayne S. Greer, CPL Michael W. Johns, CPL Gregory H. Lunde, and SGT James Sefrhans. [Taken from]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/4/14 - by Curt Carter
    Dear CPL Michael Wayne Johns, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I too remember going hunting and fishing with you. Searching for arrowhead in the woods behind Granny's house. All the family is so proud of you. You were taken from us so suddenly but you have not been forgotten. Thank you for serving out country.
