Freedom Fighters: Jim Broussard

Posted: Updated:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Jim Broussard spent 33 and 1/3 months aboard the U.S.S. Suwannee during World War Two, and was involved in ten major battles against the Japanese in the Pacific.  

His ship was hit by the first Japanese suicide plane of the war, and later was hit by two more.

Although the ship was badly damaged all three times and lives were lost, the Suwannee never sank and continued to fight until the end of the war.
