‘Welcome Home’

“It was much more than I expected, just tremendous; to look into the eyes of the individuals and welcome them home was incredible,” said Mackinac Island American Legion Post Commander Sidney DeHaan, as more than 100 local Vietnamera veterans and their families were honored during the United States Vietnam War Commemoration in St. Ignace Saturday, May 20.
