    Looking for Ken B. Johnson

    Looking for marine Ken Bruce Johnson from Batten Rouge. Was in Jeddah in 1989, the Ethiopia, then Madagasgar, was hurt and sent to hospital in Germany. The last I heard in California, it was there we lost touch. Heard he could have been killed while on leave during a robbery. Can anyone help me find out? I know only the first names of some of the guys who were with him in Saudi, Alex Gonsalves, Doug, Herb, Gunny's name was Derek. Anything will help. God Bless and thanks.

    thank you. His birthday was Jan 27, 1969. When I last talked to him he was in California . That was in 2000. Then we lost touch. He had called me in 2001 and left me a strange message about not coming back from where he was going this time. Another marine friend seems to think he was killed in 2003-2004 in Batten Rouge during a robbery. I just need to know. Tried finding his mom after the hurrican but no luck. Thanks again. God Bless

    Mistyblue, I'm from Baton Rouge. I know the story you are referring to. There was a road rage issue with a couple of drivers that led off the interstate (I-10) and into a gas station parking lot. I was trying to join the Marine Corps at time and I specifically remember the news people saying a Marine MSgt was killed in the incident.

    Now, I don't know if it was him, but there aren't many MSgt Marines running around B.R., LA.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Just asking in case there maybe another Marine who has questions ..
    Are you able to post any details about the incident?
    Perhaps down the road, another Marine may come looking for information on the
    same Marine.

    hi Ed....
    here is a portion of her letter to me....


    Anyways, We appreciate you being concerned about our brother and trying to locate him. The replies to your post were sort of on point as to what happened to him. He lived in New Orleans but was here in Baton Rouge for a Marine Conference in 2003 and he and one of my other brothers hung out and went to their old high schools football game. On their way back home, they stopped at a gas station and not intentionally cut sum guys off who were pulling out of the gas station. the other guys got upset and began to argue with Ken and my other brother. Next thing you know, the guys pulled out guns and shot Ken then stood over him and shot him 4 more times. It has beem a Great loss for our family and his friends but we know that he is in a better place. He was married and at the time he had a 4yr old daughter who is now 12. she is the spitting image of him too! ...Well, I wanted to give you sum closure as to your "Missing Friend"

    Hi Mistybluelady

    I don't know if you are still looking for Ken. I see you posted you were looking for him some years ago. He was older brother. He pasted away in 2003.
