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.
