Respectfully request you post any information regarding a Coast Guardsman named Clifford Johnson. From reading many articles he reentered the Grove many times looking for his date and each time he exited he brought out people. I would like more information on this subject so he can be recognized for his heroic actions. In addition, he was burned over 55% of his body and survived. I know it is a long shot but it would assist me in getting first hand information from anyone who might have encountered or know of his actions. The first hand accounts would strengthen my award recommendation. I will be putting an award recommendation for the Coast Guard's highest honor (not during enemy conflict); The Coast Guard Medal.
Thank you. I can be reached at: Richard.S.Wolfe@uscg.mil or on my cell (251) 583-0873.
