FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) _ A British military officer is leaving his position with the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley to return to the United Kingdom for duty.

Brig. Felix G. Gedney has been serving as the 1st Infantry's deputy commanding general for training since November 2011. A farewell ceremony was scheduled Wednesday at the northeast Kansas Army post.

Gedney deployed from April 2012 to March 2013 with the division to Afghanistan. He oversaw the support that Regional Command-East provided to NATO and U.S. forces handing off security duties to Afghan forces.

His previous tours of duty include serving at the United Nations in 2000 and leading British forces in Iraq in 2008.
