    Dickie Johnson was a leader on and off the football field. There are many personalities and motivations on the football field, but I still recall, as a 15 year old, his quiet fortitude, drive and friendly nature.

    I played,on the Wallingford Exchange Club Little League baseball club with Dickie. And his father, a former Marine, coached me and my team mates on the Barkers youth football league team for two years. My friends at Lyman Hall High School were devastated by Dickie's death. He was well loved. It was my honor to know Richard Johnson and the Johnson family.

    Dear PFC Richard Arno Johnson Jr, 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
