Johnson, 25, assimilated a Army in 2014, apropos a member of a Special Forces and was awarded leadership, feat and marksmanship accommodations, according to his obituary.

Johnson and 3 other soldiers, as good as 5 Nigerian soldiers, died Oct. 4 in Niger when they were pounded by militants tied to a Islamic State. His genocide became a core of a brawl between President Donald Trump and U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla.

About 1,200 mourners collected Saturday during Christ a Rock Church to remember Johnson before he was laid to rest. Johnson’s family asked reporters to stay outward during a service.




Portraits of his 3 comrades killed in movement — Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Washington; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia — assimilated his on a theatre as a pastor, family and Wilson spoke.

La David and Myeshia were high propagandize sweethearts. She is due to have a daughter, La’Shee, in January. An online fundraiser has lifted some-more than $600,000 to compensate for a children’s education.




Johnson’s sister, Angela Ghent, pronounced his detriment doesn’t feel real.




“It hasn’t strike me yet,” Ghent said. “I haven’t had time to grieve.”




Mourners pronounced a quarrel between Trump and Wilson was never mentioned during a service.




The fight of difference between a boss and Wilson began Tuesday when she pronounced Trump told Johnson’s widow in a phone call that her father “knew what he sealed adult for” and didn’t seem to know his name, a chronicle after corroborated adult by Johnson’s aunt.




The brawl has continued by a weekend with Trump tweeting: “I wish a Fake News Media keeps articulate about Wacky Congresswoman Wilson in that she, as a representative, is murdering a Democrat Party!”
