Fort Carson held a farewell ceremony Monday afternoon for more soldiers.

This time, the Army post said goodbye to 67 members of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division.

Fort Carson deployed 12,000 troops overseas after the war in Iraq began, and those soldiers began returning home last year. Now thousands are heading back. The second round of deployments began last fall.

About 8,000 Fort Carson troops are expected to be back in Iraq in spring.
