U.S. Army Staff Sergeant (SSG) Clark “Jey” Johnson bravely served for 16 years on active duty. During that time, he completed four deployment tours in Bosnia, Kuwait and Iraq.
During his last deployment in Iraq in February 2006, SSG Johnson’s unit struck an unknown buried improvised explosive device (IED). The explosion caused catastrophic damage, instantly killing the driver and leaving SSG Johnson with serious head and neck injuries.
Only a month later, SSG Johnson was manning a weapon on top of a tank in convoy of vehicles. One of the tanks hit an IED, severely striking SSG Johnson’s right hand in the explosion. He was medically evacuated back to the U.S. and underwent several surgeries to salvage his hand. In 2012, SSG medically retired from the Army.
Meet the Johnson Family
SSG Jey and Shana Johnson have been married for 18 years and currently live in Colorado Springs, CO. They have four children: DJ, Kearstyne, Jace (17), and Karragyne (15). They also have three grandsons: Trenton (4), Grayson (2), and baby Koa.
The Johnsons love spending quality time together playing games, cheering on the Dallas Cowboys, and listening to music by George Straight, Phil Collins, and songs from the boys’ favorite movie, Disney’s Moana.
The family is excited to move to Bluffton, South Carolina, especially since neither Shana nor the kids have ever seen the ocean before. Their dream home will be ready for them this November, just in time for the holiday season!
