  • Remembering My Dad

    He was a military man from day one. He was 39 years old when he died and had served in the Army for 22 of those years. At the age of 17, he lied about his age and joined the Army. This was his third tour, with his first two being to Korea. He dedicated his life to the military service and would have become a "lifer" if given the chance. He loved this country and considered it an honor to serve and protect for our freedom.

    I am proud to say he was my father and only wish we would have had more time to spend together. I will see you again someday.

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Gerald.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SFC Gerald James Johnson, 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
