Friends and family at Fort Carson welcomed home 290 American heroes home after a 12 month deployment to Afghanistan. Soldiers of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division arrived to the cheers of more than 300 friends and family members at Fort Carson's, Special Events Center at 12:30 am Saturday.

The late hour did not dampen the mood as Toby Keith's, "American Soldier" blasted over the loud speaker system and the familiar smoke screen was marched through by the returning soldiers. KKTV was there to capture the reactions of the returning soldiers and family members.

The members of the returning soldiers have been deployed to Afghanistan providing training and security to the local government and military. There are more homecomings scheduled for later this week, be sure to follow 11 News for details.
