JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas --

The 433rd Airlift Wing recognized 24 newly promoted noncommissioned officers and senior NCO during an induction ceremony held July 13 at the Robert D. Gaylor NCOs Academy here.

Guest speaker, Chief Master Sgt. Mark Sherwood, 356th Airlift Squadron chief flight engineer, spoke about the importance of having these ceremonies.

“There are two reasons to recognize especially the junior non-commissioned officers; one is the pat on the back for the hard work they’ve put in for getting to the level where they’re at and two, for those under them so they can see what they must do to get to that level,” said Sherwood.

Due to mission requirements, not all newly appointed NCOs were able to attend the ceremony.
