Family and friends welcomed home hundreds more soldiers to the Mountain Post Thursday.
About 280 soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, marched into the Special Events Center around 11 a.m. to the loud cheers of excited loved ones, happy to see them home safe and sound.
The soldiers were deployed for 15 months in different locations throughout Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Homecomings are always an emotional day for soldiers and their loved ones who have been waiting a very long time to see each other again. Little boys wore combat fatigue pants and waived American flags, waiting to see their mom or dad again.
Fort Carson has already welcomed home more than 1,000 of the roughly 3,800 soldiers in the 3BCT, 4ID who are returning from Iraq.
