Home just in time for Valentine's Day- and there was no shortage of loving at Friday's Fort Carson homecoming.

About 380 soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division arrived on the Mountain Post Friday. The soldiers served 15 months in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

They were honored in a ceremony at the post's Special Events Center.

The 3,800 3BCT, 4ID are in the process of coming home over several weeks. Including today, about 2,500 soldiers have returned so far, including 1,020 that will come home this holiday weekend. Fort Carson says all 3,800 soldiers should be home by the end of next week.
