Evaristo Pacheco Johnston

This soldier was survived by his mother, two sisters, two brothers and family he didn’t live long enough to meet. The loss of every veteran or active duty soldier killed in action is personal. 

His death was a direct hit to me because Evaristo Pacheco Johnston was a member of my family. This brave fallen Marine who was killed in action while fighting in Vietnam was also my cousin.
