TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Two Kansas Army National Guard units are holding change of command ceremonies this week, including one that was delayed by the partial federal shutdown.
The 2nd Combined Arms Battalion, 137th Infantry Regiment will change commanders Friday at a ceremony in Salina. Lt. Col. Steven W. Denney is assuming command from Lt. Col. Robert A. Wood.
The battalion has units based in Emporia, Junction City, Lawrence, Lenexa, Manhattan, Topeka and Wichita.
A change of command in the 35th Infantry Division originally scheduled for early October will take place on Saturday at Fort Leavenworth.
Maj. Gen. Michael D. Navrkal takes over for Maj. Gen. John Davoren, who is retiring after 37 years in uniform.
