Brockport native gets top post at Nat'l Guard
Auburn, N.Y. (AP) - A 23-year veteran of the New York Army National Guard is taking over command of a military police battalion based in central New York.
Maj. Michael Fowler will take over the 102nd Military Police Battalion during a change-of-command ceremony being held Sunday morning at the state armory in Auburn in Cayuga County.
The Brockport native is a 19-year veteran of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, where he's a road patrol captain working out of the Rochester suburb of Henrietta. He led the New York National Guard's 105 Military Police Co. in Iraq in 2003-2004.
Fowler takes over from Lt. Col. Arthur Zegers, who has been named director of internal review for the National Guard's U.S. Property and Fiscal Office in suburban Albany.
