Army Corps: Change of Command for Mississippi Valley Division

In a formal change of command ceremony, Brigadier General Peter A. “Duke” DeLuca will transfer command of the Mississippi Valley Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to Brigadier General Michael C. Wehr, on Friday, August 29, 2014.

The ceremony will be officiated by the Corps’ Chief of Engineers, Lieutenant General Thomas Bostick, and will take place at 10:00 a.m. in the Vicksburg Convention Center.

DeLuca, division commander and president-designee of the Mississippi River Commission since September 2013, will be retiring after more than 32 years of service with the United States Army.

As MVD’s 38th commander, Wehr will be responsible for the Corps water resources programs in a 370,000-square-mile area that includes portions of 12 states; its boundary extends from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition, Wehr will be president-designee of the Mississippi River Commission, the presidentially appointed agency that oversees the comprehensive Mississippi River and Tributaries flood control and navigation project, as well as the entire Mississippi River and its tributaries.
