Many stores and offices that cater to Fort Carson soldiers are feeling the penny pinch of their absence.

Some owners say business is down by as much as half and are considering shutting their doors.

A research firm estimates Colorado Springs' overall economy could lose as much as 222 million dollars while the soldiers are away.

But many owners say their concerns pale in comparison to those of families who risk the loss of a loved one.
