Sgt Johnston - Hawaiian shirts

Members of the 242D Ordinance Battalion at Fort Carson in Colorado pose in Hawaiian shirts Thursday to honor the memory of Fort Hood solider James Johnston, who died during a Taliban attack in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan on June 25.

People from around the U.S. are honoring a Fort Hood soldier killed in Afghanistan by donning Hawaiian shirts and posting their photos on Facebook.

The family of James Johnston had asked those who wished to remember the Fort Hood sergeant to post the photos under the hashtag #hawaiianshirtsforjj.
