The Iowa National Guard has unveiled a new logo.
The updated logo features red-white-and-blue colors with a “Minute Man” in the middle. Guard spokesman Colonel Michael Wunn says the new logo comes as Major General Ben Correll, a Manchester and Strawberry Point native, takes over command of the organization.
He says an Ankeny soldier with the 135th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment did the main design. The logo features the American flag inside the outline of the state of Iowa.
And he says the Minute Man figure in the middle also reflects the tradition of the citizen soldier.
The governor selected Corell to become the Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard back in August. There are approximately 85-hundred soldiers serving in the Iowa Army and Air National Guard.
