Local Vietnam veterans get true homecoming celebration

From the Times-News:

CONCORD– Harley Smith, 18, had the opportunity Saturday to see her father, a Vietnam veteran, finally got the recognition he and thousands of his comrades deserve as they attended a Vietnam Veterans Homecoming Celebration at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“It was the only war when they didn’t come home heroes,” said Smith, a Hendersonville High School senior. “It is really sad.”
