NCO Induction Ceremony
The U.S. Army Japan and I Corps (Forward) Noncommissioned Officer’s Induction Ceremony was conducted Feb. 27 at the Camp Zama Community Activity Center.
Fourteen U.S. Army Soldiers and two Japan Ground Self-Defense Force members were inducted into the NCO Corps, with Command Sgt. Maj. J. Antez Gilbert, command sergeant major for U.S. Army Garrison Torii Station Okinawa, Japan, as a guest speaker for the event.
After the inductees recited the Soldier's creed followed by a candle lighting ceremony, oath of induction and the NCO’s creed, there was a cake cutting ceremony to welcome the Soldiers to the new ranks of fellow NCOs.
