Wreaths Across America helps ensure we never forget
Gold Star families are a reminder of the service and ultimate sacrifice of our nation’s service members and families. We owe this family a debt we can never repay. Never forget that Sgt. Johnston paid the ultimate sacrifice defending what we hold most dearly as Americans....
Wreaths event to honor fallen Galveston soldier
This year, seven ceremonial wreaths will be placed by representatives from each branch of the service and a special tribute will be paid to the family of U.S. Army Sgt. James Gregory “Jamie” Johnston, formerly of Galveston, who was killed in action in June while serving in Afghanistan. Johnston’s wife, Krista, and infant daughter, Jamie, born on Veterans Day after her father’s death, will attend the ceremony. Meghan Billiot, Johnston’s mother and a Galvestonian, will be there too, to honor her son and the sons and daughters of other families....
