The body of a Fort Campbell soldier slain in Afghanistan returned to his hometown of Owensboro to a crowd of hundreds waving flags and waiting to give him a hero's send off.

Sgt. Michael Christopher Cable died March 27 in eastern Afghanistan after a teenager stabbed him from behind. The 26-year-old native of Philpot was due to return home from combat in June.

The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reported that 137 bikers from at least five organizations followed police and military personnel from the airport to the funeral home.

Visitation at the funeral home will be from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home.

Burial will follow in Rosehill Cemetery.
