​Army Suspends Fort Riley Commander, Launches Investigation

FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Army says it has suspended the commander of Fort Riley and launched an official investigation, though no details have been provided about what led to the action. Army spokesman Colonel Patrick R. Seiber announced Friday that Major General Wayne Grigsby has been suspended as commander of the 1st Infantry Division at the Kansas base. He declined further comment. An Army spokeswoman also declined to disclose the nature of the investigation.
About 17,000 troops are stationed at Fort Riley.​ Grigsby assumed command of Fort Riley in August 2015, after 31 years of military service that included a stint as commander of the Combined Joint Task Force in East Africa. Grigsby was previously stationed at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and served in multiple deployments to Iraq, including as commander of the 1st Infantry Division's G3 unit.
