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.

    My son, Spec. Justin G. Smith was one of the one that came home. (02/07/09). It was one of the greatest moments of my life watching him come home. He is my hero. Thank you for covering this event.

    Once again I want to thank you for your coverage of the 3BCT homecomings. As tears flow down my cheeks, I am ever thankful for, and proud of, the many brave soldiers who have given so much to protect us. Sadly I think of those families of soldlers who gave the ultimate sacrifice and will never experience the elation of those in your videos. Thank you!
