FAYETTEVILLE — A high-ranking Nash County deputy has been promoted in his capacity as a longtime N.C. National Guard soldier.

Capt. Robert Bowen is the Nash County Detention Center’s administrator and a 30-year National Guard member.

In a change of command ceremony in Fayetteville, Bowen received a promotion from sergeant major to command sergeant major of the 1-252 Armor Regiment.

The ceremony included an exchange of the noncommissioned officer sword representing the change of responsibility to Bowen as the division’s senior noncommissioned officer, Chief Deputy Brandon Medina of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office said in a Saturday press release.

The 1-252 Armor Regiment is a combined arms battalion of the National Guard’s 30th Armored Brigade Combat Team. The regiment consists of 800 soldiers in six companies, including an infantry unit, two armor units, forward support and a headquarters company.

The battalion is spread across eastern North Carolina with armories in Fayetteville, Williamston, Smithfield, Southern Pines, Sanford, Parkton and Red Springs.

Bowen’s family, friends and peers witnessed the change of command ceremony. Also in attendance were Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone and Maj. Miste Strickland.
