Ky. National Guard to hold responsibility ceremony

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky National Guard will have a ceremony to bring on a new top-ranking non-commissioned officer to oversee the training, welfare and morale of the enlisted corps and act as the adjutant general's principal adviser on such matters.

The change of responsibility ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at the State Capitol Building Rotunda in Frankfort.

Adjutant General Edward W. Tonini will honor outgoing State Command Sgt. Maj. Greg Armstrong and incoming State Command Sgt. Maj. Thomas Chumley.

A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, Armstrong has served as the state command sergeant major since 2009.

Chumley enlisted in the service during the Vietnam War and recently returned from the Horn of Africa in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
