Continuing to track rain/snow showers throughout southeast Colorado this morning as wet, gloomy and cool conditions continue. If you are hitting the roads in the higher elevation (Teller/Fremont/Custer/ Monument) make sure you allow a little extra time as some roads may be a little snow covered. Wet pavement remains everywhere else. We'll see rain/snow showers continue for most of our Monday, clearing out before midnight. Head on over to the "Weather" tab for a full look at the week ahead.
The troops are members of the 571st Medical Company
Unfortunately, not everyone in the troop is returning home.
In May, Chief Warrant officers Brian Van Dusen and Hans Gukeisen and Corporal Richard Carl died when their black hawk helicopter crashed.
On Jan. 8, Chief Warrant officers Philip Johnson Junior, Ian Manuel and Sergeants Michael Diraimondo and Christopher Golby died when their black hawk crashed.
Some of the troops say the homecoming is bittersweet because of the loss of those soldiers.
