DEWITT — Once upon a time, soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War were badly mistreated when they arrived back home, according to Vietnam War veteran David Laycock. “When I came home I was beaten three days later in the streets of Lansing,” Laycock said. “They ripped up my uniform and would spit on me.”

Although the widely-unsupported war maybe an extreme example, DeWitt Public Schools and businesses paid tribute to all veterans with ceremonies and donations on Nov. 11. Christy Stehouwer was in attendance for the ceremony.
