FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) — About 300 Fort Carson soldiers are back home from Afghanistan.

Families were waiting to greet the members of the 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team for a homecoming ceremony just before 1 a.m. Friday at the post.

KRDO-TV  reports  that Maj. John Anderson ran in front of other soldiers to greet his two sons, leading one of them to start crying immediately. Teddy Anderson says he was a little nervous since he hadn't seen his father in such a long time.

The unit deployed to Afghanistan in February to train and assist Afghan soldiers.
