About 200 soldiers from Fort Carson will get to spend the holidays at home instead of Afghanistan.

The soldiers are members of the 4th Infantry Division's 2nd Brigade Combat Team and are scheduled to return from Afghanistan about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The Army says the Warhorse brigade is coming home six months early after the successful completion of its mission in the western province of Herat.

The brigade has been working with the Afghan army and police to increase security in the area and conducting humanitarian aid projects.

Also, on Thursday the post will welcome home about 100 soldiers with the 62nd Engineer Company who are returning from Iraq. The soldiers are the last from Carson are the last to have departed Iraq.
