Petition: Reopen the LaVena Johnson investigation

I received a letter from a gentleman who asked if there was a letter circulating which demands that the Army reopen its investigation of the death of Pfc. LaVena Johnson. Something that people might sign and pass along to others.

I replied that there was no such letter so far as I knew. But it was a good idea. There ought be such an opportunity for people work both individually and communally to help the Johnson family determine the truth of what happened to their daughter. And now there is.

This web-based petition to the Armed Services Committees of the Senate and the House of Representatives asks the members of those bodies to compel the Army to reexamine the clouded circumstances of the death of LaVena Johnson. Please read the petition. Please sign it. Please share it with everyone you know. Thank you.
