When will Congress stand up for LaVena Johnson?

News & Politics

From today's Associated Press article on a U.S. House committee's quest for honest answers for two military families:


"After successive failed Department of Defense and Army inquiries, only a comprehensive, unrelenting congressional investigation can do justice to Pat's memory, and restore service members' confidence in their chain of command," said Rep. Mike Honda, a Democrat who represents the Tillman family's San Jose district. "I will not rest until the unvarnished truth - no matter where it leads - is brought to light."
If only Mike Honda represented the family of Pfc. LaVena Johnson.
