"It makes me feel good and, in another way, it makes me feel sad," Richie Stetter said. "It brings up old memories. I’m glad it’s all over with. The last time I came back from Vietnam, they spit on us. They treated us like trash." Stetter and more than a 100 other veterans were embraced in the welcome home ceremony on the 50th anniversary of the war at the Gen. Robert H. Reed Recreation Center on Friday. Stetter, who lives in Murrells Inlet, was drafted into the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam in 1966-1967. Photo by Janet Morgan/janet.morgan@myhorrynews.com
