SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah National Guard has a new commander.

Captain Todd Christensen, of Orem, is the new commander of the National Guard's 116th Engineer Company. He's taking over the position from Captain Talon Greeff of Riverton.

Greeff has led the 116th since October 2004. His unit has served in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and last June reported to the Mexican border as part of Operation Jump Sart.

Christensen --- an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran himself --- will now be in charge of 160 soldiers.
