In my July 27, 2005 post War and Peace I wrote about the death of Army Pvt. LaVena L. Johnson.
Shakespeare’s Sister has reported a follow-up on how the Johnson family is challenging the report that Pvt. Johnson committed suicide.
Pvt. Johnson’s father, Dr. Johnson, is requesting an investigation. He has been adamant from the beginning that he believes his daughter was murdered. As reported on KMOV, the evidence points to Pvt. Johnson having been the victim of foul play.
LaVena Johnson was the first woman soldier from Missouri to die while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
She died at 19 years old near Balad, Iraq, on July 19, 2005.
Please take a moment to read the post at Shakespeare’s Sister and to contact your Senator if they are listed as being on the Armed Services Committee.
