Capt. Gary Fleck, pictured above at right, of Springfield, took command of the Missouri National Guard's Delta Company, 1st of the 138th Infantry Regiment in a change of command ceremony held on March 3 in Anderson. Capt. Thomas Williams, of Joplin, gave up his leadership of the 90-member Monett-and Anderson-based heavy weapons unit. "I'm really looking forward to running a heavy weapons company and being hands-on with what they bring to the fight. I enjoy training at the company level and really like being in the field. Delta Company is big on training, so I expect it'll be a good fit," Fleck said. Williams, of Joplin, has taken the position of train-ing officer for the 203rd Engineer Company. While up for the change in unit and position, he won't soon forget his command of the infantry detachment.
