GYSGT Moncie Johns KIA Basra 06/17/14

Gunnery Sergeant Moncie Johns was killed in Basra, Iraq on June 17, 2014 while supporting US missions and serving as a contractor. He was retired from the Marine Corps but still desired to serve, protect, and defend the Iraqi people. Details are forthcoming due to the nature of the incident.

Gunny Johns was one of the finest Marines ever to wear the uniform. He embodied the values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. He was dependable, intellgent, fearless, and always the first one to volunteer for the tough assignments. He was due to return home to his young daughters in 4 days.
Gunnery Sergeant Johns led Marines in a variety of units during his time in the Marines including 1st Battalion 4th Marines, 2nd Battalion 5th Marines, and as a Drill Instructor. 

Due to the unexpected and tragic timing of this loss, this account is being set up to help the family cover immediate needs and to set up a scholarship fund for the girls. Moncie was the definiton of leader and embodied all of the core qualities that make this nation great. Please donate, share this page, and help us to properly honor a true American hero. 

Semper Fidelis.

(For personal verification purposes, I served with Moncie in Alpha 1/4 where he was platoon sergeant for Weapons. I was in 3rd platoon. He arrived to us straight off the DI field and we deployed to Iraq/Najaf from May 2004-Feb 2005 with the 11th MEU aboard the USS Denver. Afterwards, he became our Company Gunny. You will find me on his FB friends list. I created the page as a way to help his daughters and family. The money will go directly to his brother Mike. Please feel free to email or message me with any questions via the link on this page. I can provide additional references, verification, or anything else that will put your mind at ease and give you 100% confidence that 100% of the funds raised will go to the immediate family. Thank you. -Dave)
