    I attended this ceremony and still respect Vietnam vets to the max. That war was terrible, but those vets did their job admirably, only to be spit on when they came home. This ceremony lets those Vietnam vets know they are welcomed home, and appreciated. A BIG Thank you for your service to all Vietnam Veterans.
