After 13 months in Vietnam, Bill Lay found himself coming home on a bus ride to the airport. At the airport, a crowd of about 30 people stood waiting on the sidewalk. They threw food at the bus and spat at the military members’ faces when they stepped off the bus.

“We were upset and wanted the bus to be stopped so that we could talk to them,” Lay said. He, along with the others on the bus, were upset and confused about the crowd’s response. During this time, many did not agree with the country’s involvement in the Vietnam War. “We did what we thought was best for our country,” Lay said.
