Fort Carson welcomed 44 soldiers with the 663rd Ordnance Company home from Afghanistan in a Monday morning ceremony.

The soldiers spent nine months overseas training Afghan bomb-disposal troops and dealing with 400 missions to defuse bombs and unexploded artillery and mortar rounds.

Commanders say the best part of the company's homecoming is that all 44 soldiers who left Colorado Springs for war returned home uninjured.

"Congratulations on a great job," Col. Bill McDonough told the soldiers.

The deployment is likely the last combat for the company for some time. American troops are set to leave Afghanistan by Dec. 31.
