“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sgt. Brendan Johnson earlier this week while serving our country in the United States Marine Corps. Since joining the Armed Forces more than 20 years ago, Brendan selflessly protected his country; and he proudly represented his neighbors throughout Dutchess County and the Hudson Valley. Brendan’s legacy will be one of dedication to his country and service to his fellow Americans. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Anna, his family and friends - and all those in service - during this time of mourning.”
