Let freedom ring

Soldiers returning from Afghanistan Saturday got a warm welcome home at a ceremony at Shelby Christian Church in their honor, along with a big surprise when they saw that Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin was also standing by to greet them.

“Truly, we were amazed to see the governor there, that he would come by and welcome us home and say a few words, well, it really meant a lot to us,” said the unit’s commander, Maj. Ryan Irvine of Shelbyville.
