RIP Col. Johnson.

Flew almost 100 combat missions as a fighter pilot for the Air Force in Korea and Vietnam. Shot down over N.Vietnam and spent seven years as a POW at the Hanoi Hilton.

My brother had the Fortunate time to interview him back in 1986 for a class paper, I’ve meet and greeted him several times in the past 35 years since he was in a our district. A very humble man that was a proud American and leader. RIP sir and thank you for your sacrifice and service!

You guys just don't know. I had an encounter with him at DFW Airport in 2002 and he was a complete jerk. He even got a dressing down from the U.S. Transportation Secretary for his actions towards me.

Why do this in a post honoring the man? Start a post of your own and post a link as I’m sure your encounter was at least as bad as spending 7 years as a guest of the ever peachy NVA.
