Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Nate Johnson, Army - Served in Iraq
Hometown: St. James
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Lee Carlson)

I am happy to vote in honor of Nate Johnson, a former student and player of mine at SJHS. We were able to talk before he left and corresponded during his stay. His courage while serving his country was admirable but equally admirable was the service he showed to his host country and he worked to provide benefits to Iraqi schoolchildren.  Upon returning to the States after his stint he looked for ways to serve his country back stateside. He is a great example of why we need to support all of our youth in school and extracurricular activities as he used these opportunities to protect and serve our country while leading others.
