COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Fort Carson has welcomed home 270 soldiers who spent the last nine months serving in the Middle East.

Soldiers of the battalion's 497th Engineer Company split their time between Kuwait and Afghanistan, completing more than 40 projects, like the construction of containment berms at a fuel facility and waste-water retention ponds.

The battalion's 544th Engineer Company spent most of its time in Kuwait working on large-scale engineering projects.

Meanwhile, platoon-sized detachments from the battalion worked in Afghanistan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates on infrastructure projects and to improve bases.
