Soldiers Home For Christmas After Year-long Deployment

Just in time for the holidays, the Kentucky National Guard will hold a welcome home ceremony for the 149th Vertical Construction Company at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky.

The Cynthiana and Olive Hill-based Soldiers are returning from a nearly year-long deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Since 9/11, nearly 16,000 Kentucky National Guard Soldiers and Airmen have mobilized in support of the Global War on Terror.
