Soldiers from a Fort Carson bomb-disposal unit are returning from Iraq tomorrow.
A welcome-home ceremony is set Wednesday for the 242nd Explosive Ordnance Battalion.
The troops spent about a year in Iraq. The soldiers performed and directed more than 1,500 missions, including about 850 emergency responses and 350 missions for reports of roadside bombs.
