Hayden Norris, 2 ½, and his mother, Robin, welcomed their father and husband, Sgt. Kevin S. Norris, home Wednesday afternoon at McClellan. Norris spent the past year in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, with the National Guard Atlas Company, 167th Infantry. The guardsmen were escorted by Calhoun County sheriff’s deputies, Calhoun County police officers and state troopers. Awaiting them were loved ones and friends waving American flags, the Jacksonville State University ROTC Honor Guard, members of the media from radio and television stations and newspapers and refreshments, including a large cake decorated in red, white and blue.
