SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - In honor of our nation's veterans this week, KPLC will profile several individuals in the lake area who served their country in battle.

Joe Hill served as a Navy Lieutenant junior grade on the USS Pyro during the Vietnam War from 1962 to 1965.

I enlisted in November of 1957 while I was a senior in high school in Shreveport Louisiana and come graduation. I  went off the boot camp in Illinois and from there onto my first ship the USS Blue.
