"Welcome Home 2011"
Chicago 1986 hosts a "Welcome Home Parade" for Vietnam veterans. It was more than 15 years after the wars end that that Parade took place. As my dear friend Jack Shiffler (U.S.M.C. Vietnam combat veteran) explained that he was hoping that at least 30,000 Veterans would attend that Parade... Much to Jacks suprise when over 250,000 showed up to march in that parade! Fast forward 25 years to June 17 2011. Chicago is host to the 1986 25th anniversary of that Parade that was the beginning of healing so many broken souls. As one Veteran explained to me that it was bad enough being involved in that horrible war but, to come home and be spit on by Americans will never leave his memory... God bless all of you that have given so much for America.Read More
