A GoFundMe campaign has already raised more than $600,000 at the time of this posting for the family of a soldier killed in Niger earlier this month.
Army Sgt. La David Johnson, a Green Beret, was killed along with three other soldiers during a operation in Niger on October 4. Johnson, 25, of Miami Gardens, Florida, was assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
Johnson leaves behind two children, ages 2 and 6, and his wife Myeshia Johnson, who is pregnant with their third child.
The GoFundMe page says that the money will be used to set up a scholarship in Johnson’s name.
The 5000 Role Model of Excellence Project, is establishing a Role Model Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson Scholarship to benefit his children by providing money towards their college education. We are asking you to donate to this worthy cause.[SOURSE: HEAVY]
