Post 283 Pickerington

In early 1981, nearly 30 veterans of the Pickerington area met in the Pickerington High School to form an American Legion Post (it has been reported that an American Legion Post had previously existed in Pickerington in 1919 though this post’s name and number is unknown). A decision was made by the membership to honor the memory of Pickerington High School's only casualty of the VietNam War. The David Johnston Memorial Post, stands as a lasting tribute to Corporal David Johnston, MIKE Company/3rd Battalion/5th Regiment/1st Marine Division who was killed in action during OPERATION TAYLOR COMMON, 3 March 1969 in Quang Nam Province, South Viet Nam.
