CAMP BEAUREGARD, La. (KALB) - The 199th Regiment at Camp Beauregard experienced a change in leadership Saturday morning.

Cerniauskas describes the moment as bittersweet, but he knows the regiment is in good hands.

“[I] look forward to helping add value to our organization by producing quality leaders,” Col.
