The Fort Carson soldiers are among the one-millionth service members to pass through the Bangor, Maine airport, and to be receiving well-wishes from these volunteers.
Veteran Dusty Fisher says, "I think all of us feel the same when they come around the corner. The excitement, and the heart beats a little faster, the emotions get up, I don't think the feelings changed for any of us. We're spending time with quality people and that can't be bad."
The Maine Troop Greeters come to the airport both day and night to provide warm welcomes to Bangor for soldiers returning from overseas or those heading out.
Many aircraft stop in Bangor as part of their intercontinental flights.
