About 2,000 Fort Carson soldiers are preparing for deployment to a new assignment.

The brigade is holding a color-casing ceremony at Fort Carson at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday at Founders Field. The casing of unit colors is a military tradition signifying the unit is ready to deploy.

The troops are from the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 4th Infantry Division.

Fort Carson says the soldiers are deploying to a location in the Central Command's area of responsibility but did not give specifics. A spokeswoman says no more information is being released.
