Carl Johnson Remembered on 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day
sayville.com - community - 12/12/2011
Ray Tomich
 

The surprise attack by Japan on United States Armed Forces at Pearl Harbor on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu occurred 70 years ago on December 7th 1941, a date that will live in infamy. It's a date that Joe and Paul Johnson remember each and every year since they lost their dear brother Carl that fateful day.

The monument at the corner of Lakeland and Johnson Avenues in Sayville most folks don't even notice as they drive by each day, but it has a special meaning to the Johnson family. Johnson Avenue was named to remember Carl who was the first Sayville boy to die in World War II. Each year, at 11am, on Pearl Harbor Day, the community of Sayville accompanied by members of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 433 and from the American Legion Smith-Wever Post 651 gather, say a pray and lay a wreath to honor our fallen comrades.

So we say thank you to Carl Johnson and all the men and women in uniform.... past, present and future.

God bless you.... and thank you.... and God bless America.

 

VFW Post Chaplain Col. Ron Bergmann offered a pray for our deceased comrades.
 
 

Remembering Carl Johnson each year are friends and relatives including Joe and wife Joan Johnson and brother Paul Johnson.
 

Despite inclement weather members of the VFW Post 433 and American Legion Post 651 joined Carl Johnsonís family to remember him and those lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor 70 years ago on December 7th, 1941.
