Fort Carson brigade returning from Iraq

FORT CARSON, Colo. ” Forty soldiers from Fort Carson’s Second Brigade Combat Team have returned from Iraq, with hundreds more expected over the next three months.

Nearly 4,000 members of the brigade will return by the end of January. They were deployed to Iraq in October of last year.

The vanguard marched into a Fort Carson gymnasium before dawn Tuesday, where many were smothered in hugs from spouses and children.

While the Second Brigade comes home, about 3,800 soldiers from the Third Brigade Combat Team will leave for Baghdad starting in December.
