A Mississippi National Guard unit based in Laurel has a new commander. In a ceremony at Camp Shelby Friday, Col. Janson D. "Durr" Boyles assumed command of the 184th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary).
He takes over for Maj. Gen. Philip R. Fisher, who commanded the 184th during its 2010-2011 deployment to Afghanistan.
The 184th commands subordinate sustainment brigades which provide supply, maintenance, transportation and other logistical support to forward operating units.
"There's a lot of accomplishment out here and to just be associated with these soldiers is quite exciting and I'm looking forward to serving with them as their leader," said Col. Boyles.
"I've been with the 184th for a number of years...great bunch of men and women," said Maj. Gen. Fisher. "They've done an excellent job and I think the Hattiesburg area and the Laurel area can be very proud of the 184th and the people that represent them," Fisher said.
During the ceremony, Fisher was promoted from brigadier general to major general. He's also retiring from the armed forces, after serving for 36 years in the National Guard and the Marines.
