Changing of the guard

URBANA -- A commander is passing the torch, or rather the flag. The UI Army ROTC hosted a "Change of Flag" ceremony Thursday morning.

Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Robins has been commander the past three years. He's retiring from the army, and passed his responsibilities onto Lieutenant Colonel Eric Stetson.

He says the most rewarding part of the job is seeing how cadets grow. About 100 are currently enrolled.
