Freedom Fighters: Bill Johnson

Posted: Updated:
PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) -

Like many other young men who fought in World War Two, Bill Johnson was only eighteen when he went into the Marine Corps.

He fought in five major battles, including the battle for Iwo Jima.

Johnson's grandson by marriage, David Cooper, says it was Johnson who inspired him to join the Marines and fight in the Gulf War and Desert Storm.
