A change in leadership within a Fort Bragg command and new assignments for two generals with local ties were among the changes announced by the Army in late May.

Army Reserve Brig. Gen. Richard K. Sele will become deputy commanding general of Fort Bragg’s U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command, according to a news release.

The command oversees most of the Army’s civil affairs and psychological operations troops, spread across more than 88 units in 32 states and Puerto Rico.

Sele, the deputy commander of the 108th Training Command in Charlotte, will replace Brig. Gen. Christopher W. Stockel.

Stockel will become commander of a USCAPOC subordinate unit, the 351st Civil Affairs Command in Mountain View, California.

In other moves, Brig. Gen. Richard G. Kaiser will become commander of Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan, and Brig. Gen. James J. Mingus will become director of the Mission Command Center of Excellence, U.S. Army Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Kaiser most recently served as commanding general of the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Cincinnati.

He previously served on Fort Bragg as the chief of staff of the 82nd Airborne Division and commander of the 20th Engineer Brigade.

Kaiser also has served as the director of operations for the 18th Airborne Corps rear detachment, as adjutant and then commander of A Company, 27th Engineer Battalion and as assistant plans officer for the 20th Engineer Brigade.

Mingus is deputy commanding general for maneuver for the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, Colorado.

He previously served at Fort Bragg as a company commander within the 82nd Airborne Division’s 2nd Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment and as commander of the 18th Airborne Corps Long Range Surveillance Company.

Mingus later served as chief of current operations at Joint Special Operations Command, also at Fort Bragg.
