NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - The U.S. Naval War College in Newport is getting a new president.

The college on Tuesday will hold a change-of-command ceremony to install Rear Adm. Walter "Ted'' Carter Jr. as its 54th president.

He replaces Rear Adm. John Christenson, who took command of the 125-year-old college in 2011.

Carter is a native of Burrillville. He has commanded the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group 12 , USS Carl Vinson and USS Camden.  He has flown 125 combat missions.

Christenson will become deputy U.S. military representative to the NATO Military Committee in Brussels.
