After nearly five decades, man meets friend from Vietnam

Barry Campbell, a Vietnam vet from Spencer County, never dreamed he would run across any of the celebrities he met while serving in Vietnam, especially not one that he held in such high regard.

But on Wednesday, as Campbell set up his Vietnam memorabilia at the Flying J in Waddy as a part of the welcome for the Rolling Thunder Ride to the Wall event, he waited patiently.

The parking lot was full of displays for the group, who stopped there in their annual Run for the Wall on the way to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
