    Unhappy Injured Bliss soldier's kids killed on way to hospital

    Times staff, wire report
    Article Launched: 10/22/2007 12:00:00 AM MDT




    Two children of a Fort Bliss soldier flown back from Iraq with combat injuries are dead and a third is on life support after a car accident on the way to visit their father in the hospital, Army officials said.
    Army Spc. John Austin Johnson was waiting for his wife and three kids to visit him at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio on Oct. 13 when another soldier told him his family's car had rolled over four times on Interstate 10 about 12 miles east of Ozona on the gusty West Texas plains.
    "He said, 'Two of my children are dead?' " Army Sgt. 1st Class Eugene Schmidt told the Dallas Morning News. "And we started crying."
    Johnson is a member of Fort Bliss' 4-1 Cavalry, post spokeswoman Jean Offutt said. She said Johnson's unit has sent a noncommissioned officer to be with the family. "They are being well taken care of by the unit," Offutt said.

    That is just so sad.

    What a crappy thing to happen to them.

    My Prayers Too

    I will pray for them tonight. I lost a child several years ago.....nothing hurts like that...and to have lost two. I can't imagine.

    God bless them all.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
