Last group of Fort Carson engineers back from Africa

· Mar. 4, 2015, 5:16 pm

The last 10 or so Fort Carson engineers who went West Africa in November to help respond to the Ebola crisis have returned to the United States, according to the army. They're not quite home with friends and family yet--they have to be monitored for Ebola symptoms in Fort Hood Texas for three weeks first.

But as Capt. Ryan Horton told Colorado Matters, the engineers all took a lot of precautions while they were there.

"We even bumped elbows instead of shaking hands with each other," he said.

Fort Carson soldiers helped construct infrastructure to contain the spread of the Ebola virus in Africa.
