1st Infantry Division to change command

FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) -- A new general is heading to Fort Riley next week to take command of the Army's 1st Infantry Division.

Maj. Gen. Paul Funk will take over command of the Army's oldest division Wednesday from Maj. Gen. William Mayville Jr. A ceremony will be held on the Cavalry Parade Field at the northeast Kansas post.

Mayville recently returned from a yearlong deployment with the 1st Infantry Division headquarters, which held a regional command in Afghanistan.
