Fort Carson, Colo. (AP) - U.S. Senator Mark Udall is meeting with Fort Carson military officials to discuss the role of soldiers from the base in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Udall will meet with Major General David Perkins and other military leaders Thursday.

A Udall spokeswoman says the Senator and the military officials will discuss the soldiers' training and making sure they have all the resources they need.

Udall is also expected to talk about the health and behavioral care for soldiers, and helping returning veterans to adapt to civilian life after their deployments.
