Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan – Fifty-two newly promoted noncommissioned officers (NCO) crossed into the corps with a symbolic induction ceremony, which represented their right of entry into, what is known as, the time honored Corps of the noncommissioned officer.

The heritage and history of the corps is rich with symbolism and traces its roots as far back as the 17th century. The NCO Induction Ceremony gave the NCOs a better understanding of the significance of becoming a sergeant and what it takes to be a good leader.
