Big Dick, as he is known affectionately by his friends, a retired television repairman, was a promising shortstop in high school until sidelined by a knee injury. As fate would have it, he recovered sufficiently to serve a tour of duty in the Navy, quietly fighting for freedom, while flawlessly performing his assigned duties aboard a destroyer.
After an honorable discharge, Dick returned to civilian life, settled down and began making a living as a productive member of society, working quietly with his hands, paying his bills, and minding his own business.
But the time has come to speak out, and Dick Johnson is stepping up to the plate once again. And this time, he's swinging for the fences.
