SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — Several thousand area residents with flags waving packed streets in the northern Idaho town of Sandpoint to welcome back family members returning from the funeral of an Air Force captain killed in Afghanistan.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that people lined streets to show their support for the family of 28-year-old Air Force Capt. David Lyon of Sandpoint. The Defense Department says Lyon died Dec. 27 when his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device in Kabul.

He was buried Wednesday in the Air Force Academy’s cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colo. Some taking part in Saturday’s show of support carried homemade signs. One read: “David Lyon: Hometown Hero, Always Remembered. Never Forgotten.”
