Fla. governor and first lady welcome troops home from Afghanistan

Gov. Rick Scott and first lady Ann Scott welcomed Florida Army National Guard troops home from deployment at a stop in Plant City on Sunday.

The troops flew into Camp Shelby, Miss., from Afghanistan and were bused to Florida. After their visit, they will be taken back to Camp Shelby to complete their final interview process, according to a statement from the governor’s office.

In December, the governor challenged major Florida retailers to help raise $35,000 to support the troops at home for the holiday season. Ten Florida retailers answered Scott’s call to action, including Publix Supermarkets, the Florida Retail Federation, Walgreens, Great Bay Distributors, Food Marketers Institute Foundation, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, Badcock Home Furniture & More, Chico’s FAS, Bealls Department Stores and Walmart.
