Commissioner Barbara Jordan urges media to let family of fallen soldier grieve in peace


MIAMI-DADE COUNTY – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan urged the media on Wednesday to let the family of fallen soldier Sgt. La David T. Johnson grieve in peace.

"My first and foremost concern is for the family of Sgt. Johnson. I ask the media to respect the privacy of this family and let them grieve in peace. Additionally, in response to the numerous media calls I have received regarding the President's call to Mrs. Johnson, I was not present when the call was received," Commissioner Jordan said.
