“NO HOME FOR HEROES” explores history’s military mysteries regarding lost service men and women who were classified as “Missing In Action”. Each podcast features information from the actual investigative case files of the Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation who is committed to providing information to the families of America’s long forgotten MIA’s.
A lot of what you hear will surprise you. Some of what you hear will make you sad. And much of what you hear will make you angry. But all of what you hear will make you proud of our American heroes.
Recently, one of our NO HOME FOR HEROES podcast listeners sent us this email, an excerpt of which is re-printed here with his permission:
The family of Carl Spencer Johnson would like to thank you for featuring his story on your podcast “No Home for Heroes” on you latest episode (Episode 50), “All Things Come to Those Who Wait”.As you know, last Friday we had a beautiful graveside ceremony, where Uncle Carl was given full military honors. The Navy, Admiral Nowakowski, the Patriot Riders, a detail from Luke AFB, and my brother Carl Robert Dahl, who was also in the Navy as a physician at the end of the Vietnam War, made it a day to remember!All of my siblings were in attendance, and nearly one hundred family members were there.Thank you and the Chief Rick Stone and Family Foundation for your part in making this all possible. It has been such a blessing to our family. I am so grateful that my niece, Gretchen Allen, contacted you in 2016 and that we went from a series of “ … and nothing happened…” to a wonderful day of tribute to a brave young sailor who was part of saving the lives of hundreds of his fellow crewmen, as he did his duty in flooding the powder magazines deep in the battleship West Virginia.This fulfilled my Grandparent’s dream of having their son return home. Carl is buried by his parents (my grandparents) Zeno and Margaret Johnson, my parents, his sister Katherine and Richard Dahl, and also his sister Anita and his cousin David. It is in a old part of the Greenwood Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix. We thought it would be difficult to find a plot, when we found there was one waiting for him all this time!A boyhood friend of Carl’s, Ronnie Luplow, age 97 (same age Carl would be) was watching his usual news channel on Christmas Eve when for some reason he changed the channel and saw a news story about Carl coming home. His daughter commented on the news channel’s website, my niece saw it and managed to contact her. Ronnie was able to be at the ceremony! Ronnie served in WWll as a landing craft pilot on Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal. He was finally able to say goodbye to his friend he had grown up with.Again, Thank you for making this possible!Daniel Dahl, M.D.
(Dr. Dahl is the nephew of Seaman 1st Class Carl Johnson, a hero who lost his life on board the USS West Virginia at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941)
