Military Biography:
While a member of a 6-man force recon team, was conducting an operation along the axis of the city limits, of Rayat,Iraq. The scout/sniper elements suffered casualties when they suddenly came under heavy fire from a well-concealed and numerically superior enemy force. Hearing the engaged marines' calls for help, Sgt. Johnson quickly exchanged his rifle for a machinegun and several belts of ammunition, left the relative safety of his position, and unhesitatingly rushed forward to aid his comrades. Taken under intense enemy small arms fire at point blank range during his advance, he returned the fire, silencing the enemy position. As Sgt.

Then even in pain from his own wounds, stood guard over his team until evacuation helicopters arrived. And only when all of these comrades were on board the helicopter and safe, did he allow himself to be taken and care for. Sgt. Johnson's daring initiative, bold fighting spirit and selfless devotion to duty inflicted many enemy casualties, disrupted the enemy attack and saved t
