About 2,000 Fort Carson soldiers are preparing for a deployment to an undisclosed location.

The troops are from the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 4th Infantry Division.

The brigade was holding a color-casing ceremony at Fort Carson on Tuesday. The casing of unit colors is a military tradition signifying the unit is ready to deploy.

Fort Carson says the soldiers are deploying to a location in the Central Command's area of responsibility but did not give specifics. A spokeswoman says no more information is being released.

The soldiers will depart over the next few weeks.
