U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ned Beatty, Ret. wants to be sure returning American veterans receive all the honor and respect they deserve.
"I spent 22 years on active duty," he said. "I am a Viet Nam vet. There's been a lot of tragedy over that whole war.
"We were spit on; we were treated pretty badly," Beatty continued. "So we want to make sure that these guys who were fighting in the sandbox were given a hero's welcome."
