FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) - About 250 soldiers based at Fort Carson are set to return home after spending the last nine months serving in Kuwait.
The soldiers from the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division will be honored during a ceremony at 4 p.m. Monday. They were deployed to the Middle East to help with security cooperation, joint exercises and training.
