SIERRA VISTA, AZ (AP) -

The top Army general at Fort Huachuca is turning over command of the Sierra Vista base to report for duty in Afghanistan.

The Sierra Vista Herald reports that Potter will be deputy chief of staff of intelligence for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

He'll be swapping assignments with Maj. Gen. Robert P. Ashley Jr.

Ashley will report to Fort Huachuca in April to assume the command of the Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca.

In the meantime, Col. Roger Sangvic will assume the Arizona commands temporarily.
