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.
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.
