TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - The family of a soldier killed in Afghanistan on June 25 wants Texans to know we’ve lost one of our own, even if the official military press release doesn’t say that.

U.S. Army Sgt. James G. Johnston was one of two soldiers killed by small arms fire while supporting combat operations in the Uruzgan Province of Afghanistan on June 25. Johnston, who deployed in March, was assigned to the 79th Ordnance Battalion (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), the 71st Ordnance Group at Fort Hood, according to the Department of Defense.

Johnston’s military home of record is listed as Trumansburg, New York.
