Just in time to fully enjoy the holidays with their families, 45 soldiers are returning home from Iraq.
Members of the 749th Explosive Ordnance Company, 242nd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion, 71st Ordnance Group, will receive a hero's welcome at Fort Carson's Waller Physical Fitness Center, before dawn Tuesday.
The soldiers have been on a nearly year-long deployment to Iraq. They worked closely with a Navy Explosive Ordnance Detachment in support of Army units in the Northern areas of Iraq.
