Team Hill welcomed the newest chief master sergeants to the rank during a Chief Induction Ceremony held at the Davis Conference Center May 14.

Inductees, family members, and guests gathered for the annual event that included a customary recognition followed by dinner, guest speakers, and a ceremony.

Only 1 percent of the entire enlisted force will earn the rank of chief.

Chief master sergeants serve in the highest enlisted rank and hold strategic leadership positions and are charged with mentoring and developing junior enlisted personnel. They bring substantial operational and occupational experience as well as strong institutional skills to their organizations and assigned tasks.
