Robert Johnston


Scottish-American military Major General, a two-star U.S. Marine Corps general in the Arabian Gulf War.

Born in Scotland, when he was 18, his family emigrated to the U.S. in 1955 where his dad worked in a factory. Robert earned a B.A. with honors from San Diego State and a degree in English. He joined the Marines in 1961 at age 24.

Serving two tough tours of Vietnam, Johnston had rapid promotions and decorations including the Legion of Merit, Combat Action Ribbon, Meritorious Service Medal and Joint Service Commendation Medal. By 1983 he was a Colonel and was promoted to Major General just three months before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The right hand man of General Schwartzkopf, he took a key role in marshalling the information which enabled President Bush to make decisions on the war tactics.

Johnston's 23-year-old son Gary joined the Marines and served as a Lieutenant in the Saudi conflict. His wife Sandra lives in Florida with their two younger sons while her husband is on duty.
