Fort Carson, “The Mountain Post,” is located just south of Colorado Springs at the base of Cheyenne Mountain.

Fort Carson was originally named Camp Carson in honor of the legendary Army scout, General Christopher “Kit”Carson who explored much of the West in the 1800’s.

Fort Carson is home of the 4th Infantry Division, the 10th Special Forces Group, the 440th Civil Affairs Battalion (USAR), the 71st Ordnance Group (EOD), the 4th Engineer Battalion, the 759th Military Police Battalion, the 10th Combat Support Hospital, the 43rd Sustainment Brigade, the Army Field Support Battalion-Fort Carson, the 423rd Transportation Company (USAR) and the 13th Air Support Operations Squadron of the United States Air Force. The post also hosts units of the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve and the Colorado Army National Guard. Ft. Carson was also home to the 5th Infantry Div. Known as the Red Devils.
