Emmet Lee Johnson is African American.

Joe Roberts: I don't remember exactly when I met SSG Johnson, but I do remember he was my squad leader in Hawaii before we shipped out to Vietnam. He was a Korean War veteran. He once told me that his friends had nicknamed him "Piper" because he had safely lead them through mine fields and they had followed him like he was the "Pied Piper". SSG Johnson was a decent, level-headed guy, a good leader who looked out for his men. He was also a loving husband, and a proud father of a beautiful baby girl. May he rest in peace.
