On Saturday, Ft. Carson families welcomed home soldiers after their third tour. This time they were returning from Kuwait. Scott Harrison reports.


The 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, began returning home to Fort Carson on Saturday.

The first wave was the advance party of 150 soldiers, mostly officers and fathers with wives expecting to deliver babies soon.

This deployment was the third for most of the brigade.  The mission was less dangerous this time, as soldiers trained with armed forces in Kuwait.

The rest of the brigade gradually returns to the Mountain Post this month.  Stay with and KRDO NewsChannel 13 for announcements of future homecoming dates.
