As Airline Baggage Policies Change After Troop Luggage Controversy, One Vietnam Vet Reflects

As Airline Baggage Policies Change After Troop Luggage Controversy, One Vietnam Vet Reflects

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  Several airlines have now changed their active duty luggage policy after a YouTube video of two disgruntled soldiers went viral.

The video shows the duo visibly upset with Delta for charging them $200 for an extra bag.

The clip has one local Vietnam Veteran reflecting on his long trip home in 1966.

"I was proud, I was a second leuitenant," said Reid Oxley. 

He was just 22 years old when he was shipped out to Vietnam in 1965. After a 13 month deployment, he says they were on their own to get home.

"We bought out own ticket, with our own money and we were put on stand by. So we just had to sleep there until a flight became available," he said.  

 When he finally landed on US soil, Oxley says he had to change out of uniform because the anti-war sentiment was so strong.

"As veterans coming home we were held accountable for even serving over there," he said.
