How James Johnson Served and Sacrificed for our Nation

 

Essay Written by Skyler Johnson of  Mahaffey Middle School
As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project “Interview a Veteran” Contest

My grandfather, James Harvey Johnson, was just a young man, straight out of a small town high school in southeastern Kentucky, when he voluntarily joined the U.S. Army. James made several sacrifices while he served, which has allowed him to be awarded not only a Bronze Star, but also a Purple Heart and many more medals.

It was Friday, May 28th 1966, the last day of high school, when James knew what he had to do; join the Army. That was his only choice since he and his family didn’t have enough money to send him straight to college. When he informed his parents on the decision he was making, they weren’t very emotional because they knew that was what he had to do. Then on June 1st, he went and enlisted in the Army.
