The seasoned veterans, wearing gear from their time at war, walked slowly down Main Street on Sunday afternoon.
They smiled and waved as the confetti rained down on them. Their first homecoming wasn't a good one, but this parade was different. This was the welcome home they hoped for but never received.
Vietnam veterans were honored in Campbellsville last weekend with a parade and ceremony in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
Nearly 200 veterans attended, many from Campbellsville.
