Death of sailor in Bahrain reclassified

The Navy has reclassified the death of a sailor who died in a motorcycle crash in July 2011 to reflect that he was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

Master-at-Arms 1st Class (AW) Stacy Johnson was killed July 18 in an accident 18 miles southwest of Naval Support Activity Bahrain. He had been assigned to Naval Security Force Bahrain.

Originally his death was listed as “other” but was subsequently changed to show his role in OEF.

The reclassification caused the Navy to announce his death Thursday, more than five months after he died. An ongoing review eventually determined that Johnson played a direct role supporting the operation, said Jen Stride, a Navy spokeswoman in Bahrain.

Johnson, 36, of Rolling Fork, Miss., reported for recruit training in November 1993, according to personnel records. He served on the amphibious ships Ogden and Peleliu, and the carrier Nimitz. He also served in Texas and Hawaii, but spent most of his career in San Diego.

He reported to Naval Security Force Bahrain in September 2010 after spending a year at Region Southwest Security Detachment San Diego.
