Some Kentucky Marines returned to the Bluegrass on Friday.
Dozens of families lined the drive, leading to the Armed Forces Reserve Center on Opportunity Way in Lexington. They were there to welcome home 40 Marines with the Military Police Company Alpha. The group is returning home from serving in Afghanistan.
Dennis Brunsman wanted to make everything just right for his son's homecoming. His son, Matt, followed in his footsteps by becoming a military police officer. The only difference, his son was called to service.
"The pride you feel for the whole situation and the fact that he did it. I don't know if I could ever bee more proud of my son than I am today," said Brunsman.
The Military Police Company Alpha ran security for convoys, among other duties. All returned without injury.
