Nearly 50 years after returning from Vietnam War, Afton man receives a homecoming
By Mary Divine
Marine Corps veteran William Isaacson didn't get a parade or a hero's welcome after Vietnam.
The decorated combat pilot said only one person met him when he returned home to Minnesota in 1966.
"My brother Bob. That was it," he said.
Friends and admirers made up for that oversight Tuesday, May 7, by throwing him a surprise parade and a motorcycle escort to a welcome-home celebration in his honor in Afton.
"I'm shocked," said Isaacson, 70. "I can't believe it. Can you believe it?"
Isaacson, who spends the winter in Oldsmar, Fla., flew home to Minnesota with a friend Tuesday afternoon. Isaacson's wife, Chrysmarie, who had driven back from Florida two weeks ago, met them at the airport to make the trip home to Afton.
Isaacson flew more than 150 combat missions during the Vietnam War and earned 11 commendations, including a Silver Star for heroic action. He said he didn't know what was going on when he saw dozens of motorcycles, a fire truck and TV news crews parked alongside Washington County 18 in Lakeland........................................................
