Ky. National Guard members returning from Ebola duty

 The Kentucky Air National Guard says about 50 members are returning to Louisville from Africa where they were helping battle the spread of Ebola.
The 123rd Contingency Response Group established a cargo processing hub in Senegal during its deployment. The hub is designed to accept large quantities of cargo arriving on C-17 and C-5 aircraft, process the material and then ship it to affected areas.
The Air National Guard says the members were stationed in Senegal, hundreds of miles away from areas affected by Ebola outbreaks. They will not have to undergo a quarantine upon their return but are undergoing symptom monitoring as a precaution.
Members of the 123rd Contingency Response Group have been involved in previous humanitarian missions, including the Haiti earthquake in 2010.
