Myeshia Johnson complained that military officials wouldn’t allow her to open her husband's casket. UPDATED: 3 p.m. EDT — Rep. Frederica Wilson wanted to know what else the government was withholding from gold star families who lost loved ones in the Niger ambush that killed four U.S. soldiers last month. Additional remains of Sgt.La David Johnson were recovered from Niger more than one month after U.S. troops came under fire by an ISIS-linked militant group. “He left a gold star family. And to learn about his final moments on TV and in the newspaper is a shame for this nation,” Wilson told the Miami Herald. “It is painful to his family. How much can a gold star family take when you say to them you cannot have an open casket funeral, but we don’t know what happened to your husband. We don’t know what happened to your son. We don’t know what happened to your brother. We don’t know what happened to your friend.” Johnson’s widow said she was forbidden by military officials from opening her husband’s casket. “Why couldn’t I see my husband? Every time I asked to see my husband, they wouldn’t let me,” she said during an interview on Good Morning America. “They won’t show me a finger, a hand. I know my husband’s body from head to toe. They won’t show me anything.” The Pentagon told News One that it was typically up to the family to decide how or if remains of a soldier killed in action would be viewed. “Viewing remains is a personal and private decision,” Pentagon spokesperson Laura Ochoa told News One on October 23. “The remains are released to the Person Authorized to Direct Disposition (PADD) and private funeral home, where at that point, the PADD may decide to view the remains.” It was not clear if Johnson’s widow – who was thrust into a nasty public dispute with the president – was made aware that her husband’s full body was not in the casket. Around the time of her husband’s funeral last month, Myeshia Johnson, six months pregnant, complained that military officials wouldn’t allow her to open the casket at all, expressing uncertainty over whether his body was even inside.

October 2017. President #donaldtrump engages in a Public Feud with a #democratic Congresswoman over her claim that he told the Widow of a #us Serviceman Killed in an Ambush in #niger that “he knew what he signed Up for, but I guess it still Hurts.” In denying #florida representative #fredericawilson’s account of aCondolence Telephone Call, the President created a Fresh Political Controversy over his Response to the Niger Attack and his Willingness to inject Politics into an Issue that is typically regarded as Sacred by past Commanders in Chief. The guy is a Joke. https://docterr.com/help
