(West Valley City-AP) -- West Valley City Manager Wayne Pyle is now soldier Pyle.

Just a couple of months after taking over as city manager, Pyle has been called to active duty in the military. He's served 15 years in the U-S Army Reserve.

Pyle says it's an honor to serve his country with the full support of his civilian employer and his family. But it does seem odd to leave so soon.

Effective immediately, Paul Isaac, the administrative services director, will replace Pyle in his absence.

Mayor Dennis Nordfelt says he'll miss Pyle, but his staff can get the job done while he's away.

No word yet on exactly where Pyle will be stationed or how long he'll be gone.
