After so many months of separation, the waiting is over for 200 Fort Carson soldiers and their loved ones.
Soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division have returned from Iraq Monday morning. The homecoming was initially planned for 4 a.m., but was pushed back about an hour. It may have been the longest hour of their lives for those waiting at Fort Carson before dawn Monday--but undoubtedly worth the wait.
An 11 News crew was on scene to capture the first joyous moments when soldiers and family see each other for the first time in a year.
The soldiers spent the last 12 months advising, training and assisting Iraqi security forces.
