On duty, 40 years later
Four decades may have passed since they served, but these Vietnam Veterans looked as if they were ready to go back to war as they rode through downtown Fayetteville in a special parade in their honor Saturday morning. The parade was followed by a ceremony at the Southern Ground Amphitheater, all designed to give Vietnam soldiers a “welcome home” they didn’t get when the war ended thanks to unpopularity in the court of public opinion.
