Fort Campbell, KY – As each of the newly promoted sergeants shook Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler III’s hand, they resounded with a forceful “Yes.”

“Are you ready to take the charge of the non-commissioned officer?” he asked as they were handed a plaque of the NCO creed.

Eight air defenders of the 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 101st Sustainment Brigade were inducted into the NCO Corps during a ceremony at the Wilson Theatre here, December 2nd.

“When you read this creed, you’ll understand what it really means to be a non-commissioned officer,” Chandler told the new NCOs and crowd. “What’s important to take away is that it’s not the words, it’s your commitment to the idea that’s behind the words.”

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 6th

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Following a horrible Thanksgiving Day holiday week, the stock market was due for a bounce, but the rebound was aided significantly by central bank action and favorable economic data.

The Federal Reserve joined five other central banks in efforts to boost dollar liquidity. The price of dollar swap arrangements between central banks was reduced to 50 basis points over the Overnight Index Swap rate (OIS), vs. 100 bps over OIS previously, and swap lines were extended to February 1st, 2013. This is U.S. dollar liquidity we’re talking about, but as a contingency measure, the central banks agreed to establish temporary liquidity facilities in other currency (euros, perhaps?) “should market conditions warrant.” The move does not go to the heart of Europe’s problems, but does aim to prevent the sort of seizing up that occurred among large global banks during the crisis of three year ago. Meanwhile, ECB president Draghi hinted of more support from the ECB if leaders could agree to a more comprehensive fiscal compact (a restatement of fiscal rules and enforcement of mutual commitments). «Read the rest of this article»
