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.
