This year, the Johnson family is once again asking for donations in memory of William “Bill” Johnson to benefit veteran treatment for PTSD through Equines for Freedom. In lieu of the Johnson Family Golf Tournament, which was cancelled due to COVID-19, the family asks that you help by donating to Equines for Freedom. We decided to use his birthday, August 13th, as the launch day for this fundraiser.

Bill, a Navy Vietnam veteran, operated in the Mekong River Delta and connecting waterways as part of the Riverine Warfare group. An engineman and bow gunner on an alpha boat and an adviser to the South Vietnamese Military, Bill served overseas for about a year. He was subsequently stationed at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, Connecticut where he worked as a diesel mechanic until he separated from the Navy, earning an honorable discharge in January 1973. Bill was awarded a Purple Heart, a National Defense Medal, and a Vietnam Service Medal for his service. He eventually passed away due to the lasting effects of Agent Orange exposure in December 2008.
