Nearly 200 Fort Carson Soldiers Arrive Home Early

FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) – Nearly 200 soldiers from Fort Carson have arrived home for the holidays.

The soldiers are members of the 4th Infantry Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team. They returned to Colorado from Afghanistan Wednesday evening.

The Army says the Warhorse brigade is home six months early following the successful completion of its mission in the western province of Herat. The brigade has been working with the Afghan army and police to increase security in the area and conducting humanitarian aid projects.
