Army Maj. Matt Cadicamo missed his son Nate's first steps and his first birthday while serving in Iraq from last July through this March. Cadicamo served with Fort Carson's 4th Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, in the town of Al Dujayl, north of Baghdad. He's one of about 12,000 Fort Carson troops who have come home from the war, some 10,000 of whom have returned just in the past couple of months. "There's a lot of adjustment that military families have to go through," Cadicamo said recently at his home in northeast Colorado Springs. He and his wife, Sheryne, and Nate, who is 16 months old, expect their next move will be to a U.S. Army base in Germany. For more on returning Fort Carson vets, read this week's cover story, which begins on page 15.
