‘Never too late’: Saturday event in Superior honors Vietnam vets

Published 08/26/2010, Pine Journal

When many Vietnam-era servicemen and women returned home during the 1960s and early ’70s they were shunned, spat on or called baby killers. On Saturday, those ignored and vilified veterans will receive the welcome home they never had. State and federal veterans departments, veterans groups in the Twin Ports and others are hosting a free, public Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home event at the Head of the Lakes Fairgrounds in Superior from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
