SUMMARY: Joseph Ned, a Lake Charles man, is being recognized as tonight's hometown hero for his service in the U.S. Navy. Joseph served two tours in the Navy, including one during Operation Desert Storm. He joined the Navy at the age of 25, looking for a career opportunity during an economic downturn in the 1980s. Joseph did not inform his parents about his decision to join the military. When he arrived in San Diego, he was given the opportunity to call home, and his mother was surprised by the news.

Joseph Ned remembers the day he left to join the Navy. He was 25 and looking for a career, after the economy bottomed out here in the early 1980s. He did not let his mom or dad know what he was doing.

SUMMARY: The 2024 College World Series features only teams from the ACC and SEC, marking the first time since 1948 that only two conferences are represented. The SEC missed setting a new record with Georgia's loss, leaving four SEC and four ACC teams in contention. The ACC boasts only two national championships, while the SEC aims to secure its fifth different champion in the last five years.
