The Huntington Corps of Engineers said Col. Leon Parrot will take command during a ceremony at City Hall on Oct 11. Parrott comes from Fort Bragg, N.C., where he served as the corps engineer for the Airborne Corps.
Col. Steven McGugan was relieved of his command in August as an investigation into alleged misconduct began. Army officials would not release the details of the alleged misconduct. McGugan was temporarily reassigned to headquarters in Washington, D.C.
