Chuck Berry pianist Johnnie Johnson is to be granted a posthumous Congressional Gold Medal for his service in US Marine Corps .
The Chuck Berry collaborator, who died in 2005, was one of the first African-Americans to join the US Marine Corps in 1942. He trained at Camp Montford Point in North Carolina during the era in which the US army remained segregated.
Over 24,000 troops trained at Montford Point until its closure in 1949, when the army was desegregated. Since 2012, over 700 of those have been decorated.
Johnson was a member of Bobby Troup’s jazz orchestra during his time in the Marines. When his service ended he worked with Muddy Waters and Little Walter.

Breathless Dan O'Coffey
I'm writing on behalf of my father here. He passed March 27, 2016, peacefully after a short illness.
I know he really enjoyed his time on facebook - he saw it as a way to champion the music he loved - 50s American Rock'n'Roll and its many roots and shoots - as well as the authentic Rockin' styles of the 1950s. He dedicated his entire life with total passion to this music and the lifestyle that went with it and as everyone will know could not stand fakes or forgeries of any kind.
I know many of you were regularly in contact with him and many others offered your best wishes - I want to thank you all personally for those.
He didn't have a message for facebook but I know he would want people to keep digging the genuine 50s Rock'n'Roll, and all its many tributaries. - Donal O'Cofaigh

Prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is
no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another. God
bless and have a nice day.
"Father, I ask you to bless my friends, relatives and Face Book buddies
reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power.
I ask you to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is
self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through your grace."
