COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)- More than 280 soldiers from Fort Carson returned home overnight where they were reunited with their family and loved ones.

The soldiers were with the 4th Brigade Combat Team and were stationed in Afghanistan.

For some soldiers, including Nicholas Davis, it meant meeting his son for the first time. He and his wife, Tiffany, are happy to have the entire family together again.

“I’m just happy to have him home with the kids,” Tiffany Davis.

“We’re going to the cabin as a family. It will be a good time,” said Nicholas Davis.

4th BCT began deploying to Afghanistan as Task Force Mountain Warrior in February 2012. As part of its duties during the deployment, Battalion and Brigade leaders partnered with four Afghan Provincial Governments – Nangarhar, Nuristan, Kunar, and Laghman.

Later, the brigade partnered with two districts of Kapisa Province as part of the French drawdown during the summer of 2012. This area comprised a total of 53 districts and a population of more than three million Afghans. The area includes Jalalabad, the third largest city in Afghanistan, the strategic Torkham Gate Border Entry Control Point and the economic corridor between Peshawar, Pakistan and Kabul, Afghanistan.
