Birth: Jan. 21, 1923
Miami County
Kansas, USA
Death: Jul. 25, 1950, South Korea

2nd. LT
Killed in action in Korea

Warren is the son of George W. JOHNSON and his first wife, Juanita Fern Phillips. He was born in KC, MO, and grew up in Paola and Osawatomie, KS. He graduated from Osawatomie High School.

In 1941 he enlisted in the Army, returning home in 1946. He served his country during WWII in the South Pacific, including the Philippines. He re-enlisted in 1948 and was sent to Japan in June of 1949 where he spent more than a year with the 69th Bomber squadron, and then on June 30th of 1950 he was sent to Korea. He died during the Battle of Yongdong, while he was a member of the 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division

His funeral service was with full military honors.

Known to some as "Sonny", he was survived by his wife, Delores, whom he married on the 12th of February 1949 at Ft. Benning GA, his father and step-mother, several brothers and sisters, and many more relatives and friends. His mother, who had remarried, passed away in 1941.

*June 1941 it was announced in his hometown newspaper that Warren had been appointed secretary to General Lehr, who it said was the 2nd highest official in the US army at that time. The only General who comes up close on a Google search is a General Ben Lear http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Lear


*I may have the marriage year wrong. Warren and Delores are mentioned in a newspaper several years earlier giving the impression they are married (1946 or 1947). I got '1949' from his obituary.
