LaVena Johnson

LaVena Johnson died in Iraq in July, 2005. According to the Dept. of Defense, the cause of death was a self-inflicted wound.

Her family, however, does not believe this official version of what happened to their daughter and military documents they have obtained provide few, if any, answers to their questions. In fact, the official military documents raise a considerable number of questions about the circumstances surrounding LaVena Johnson’s death.

The Johnson family has raised compelling arguments for reopening the investigation into LaVena Johnson’s death, but the military has so far refused to act.

You can read more about this case, view a video of LaVena’s father, Dr. John Johnson, and sign a petition requesting the Armed Services Committees in Congress reopen LaVena Johnson’s case.
