Southern Colorado Sailor Returns From Year Deployment

Ahead of a homecoming for 200 Ft. Carson soldiers, a local sailor arrived to a warm welcome at the Colorado Springs Airport Thursday night.

“I’m ecstatic to be home,” said PO3 Kyle Curran.

This sailor's welcome was made warm by his mother and a small group of friends and co-workers. Two members of the Patriot Guard stood by with American flags.

“Just knowing he’s on American soil and has done his part for his country--he is my hero,” said his mother, Clara.

Curran spent 12 months in the Middle East providing physical security in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, which officially came to an end Thursday.

"The morale is skyrocketing, but the mission is still there and the mission is still going that's what we need to still know,” Curran said. “It's not over until everyone is home."

Curran serves with the Navy Operational Support Center based out of Ft. Carson. Four other sailors with the command also were a part of the year-long mission overseas.
