U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson Funeral Service

U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was among four American service members killed in Niger earlier this month, was laid to rest in his home state of Florida on Saturday.

A flag-covered coffin holding Johnson’s remains was carried into South Florida’s Christ The Rock Church for a private funeral service Saturday morning. American flags flew at half-staff across the Sunshine State as Johnson’s body was then taken to Hollywood Memorial Gardens where he was buried.

An emotional public viewing for Johnson, 25, was held the previous night at the church in Cooper City, where gospel music filled the room while loved ones and strangers cried, prayed and hugged each other. His family, wearing red shirts, sat in the front row, a short distance from his closed casket, flanked by a heart-shaped wreath made of red roses.

  1. Look at this hellish monster, y’all. He’s calling a grieving widow a lie. I hate him so much.

  2. John Kelly, Donald Trump & anyone else who attacked Ms Wilson & claimed she was secretly listening in on phone call with Sgt La David Johnson’s family. Y’all got it?

  11. Trump’s constant taunting of Frederica Wilson is showing his utter contempt & disrespect of US soldier #SgtLaDavidJohnson & his family.
