FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) _ A change of command ceremony is scheduled for Thursday at Fort Riley for the 1st Infantry Division's Combat Aviation Brigade.

Col. John M. Morgan, commander of the brigade since the summer of 2011, will hand over leadership to Col. Matthew R. Lewis. A ceremony will be held on the Fort Riley Cavalry Parade Field.

During Morgan's tenure the brigade has added new aviation equipment, including the Gray Eagle unmanned aircraft system and an updated version of the Army's Apache helicopters.

Lewis has recently been at Harvard, where he served as a national security fellow and senior military fellow in Harvard's Future Diplomacy Project.

Fort Riley is home to the 1st Infantry Division and located about 60 miles west of Topeka.
