Griffin's Good Life: Dallas Greene

Posted: Updated:

On this Veteran's Day, Bob Griffin, talks to Dallas Greene who recounts his years of service.

At 90 years-old, Dallas Greene, physically can't go dashing this way and that, but he can still lead the good life.

One thing that's enjoyable is to call up memories of past deeds accomplished.

"Yes, sir, I was really proud of my actions in World War II. I went into a firefighting unit, a brand new unit just starting out," Greene said.

Greene was Shreveport Fire Chief from 1965 to 1989 before retiring after 47 years with the fire department.

A quarter of a century after hanging up his fire chief's uniform, Greene still thinks of himself as part of the fireman family.

"The fire department has always been one big happy family," He said, "And I'm proud of them today as I was when I was chief."  

Today is Veterans Day and Greene played a major role in the planning of a ceremony at the Montclaire to honor veterans.

Dallas Greene, after years of service to his community, still living the good life at the age of 90.
