96 soldiers return to Cynthiana from Afghanistan

By The Staff

Cynthiana’s National Guard soldiers returned to Cynthiana last week after a one-year deployment serving in Afghanistan as part of the Operation  Enduring Freedom.

Soldiers with C Co. 201st Engineering Battalion left Cynthiana last March for training at Ft. McCoy, Wisc. Their overseas deployment began in May.

They were released to their families Thursday evening in Ashland, Ky.

 A local celebration Freedom Salute will be held in May in Cynthiana.

Sgt. Allen Fryman said plans are being formed now to honor the men and women “in a big way.”

Anyone interested in helping with the planning of the celebration should contact Fryman at 859-298-4954 or Paul Colson at 859-234-8226.
