The Sandy Springs City Council honored a local man who has recently returned from Afghanistan by naming a day in his honor.

The Bronze Star winner trained in basic under water demolition, the city said.
“If I had known this was in my future I probably would’ve gotten up a little bit earlier to enjoy this day,” Ogden said. ” … We’ve got boys down range right now getting after it, puttin gtheir lives on the line. This mission is near to my heart.”
