"I'm holding him in my arms and I'm trying to talk to him, and I'm telling the medic we need a medevac...and then a scary thing happened. He just came to, came back alive and he was pulling me close to him...telling me, 'Don't let me die.'
"The medic tried to give him the IV but his veins were flat," he added. "Then from him pulling me to him, he just let go and that was it."
Sgt. Randy Johnson was on his second tour in 2007.
Sgt. Johnson’s widow: "It's not a place he wanted to go back to. But it was his duty. He was a passionate soldier and that's what he needed to do."
