Vietnam MIA Honored In Longview

A welcome home ceremony today honored an East Texas airman who has been listed as Missing In Action since the Vietnam War.  It was in March of 1969, the plane of Longview native, Air Force Airman Clyde Campbell was shot down over Vietnam.  He has been listed as MIA, for nearly 40 years.  Sunday, Gregg County Commissioners presented a special proclamation and honorary plaque to members of the local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in a symbolic welcome home ceremony for Campbell.  Several Vietnam veterans were on hand to witness the ceremony.
