Chief Recognition Ceremony

Senior Master Sgt. Bruce McPherson, the 71st Security Forces Squadron superintendent, lights a candle above chief’s stripes during a Chief Recognition Ceremony April 9 at the Vance Collocated Club. Each candle was lit by an Airman – E-1 to E-8 – as the responsibilities for each rank were read from the ‘Little Brown Book’ otherwise known as the enlisted force structure. Team Vance recognized McPherson as its only chief master sergeant select during the ceremony. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. James Bolinger)
