Forty six new non-commissioned officers from the 16th STB and the 30th CSSB were officially inducted into the corps of non-commissioned officers during the ceremony. Guest speaker Command Sgt. Maj. James E. Spencer, command sergeant major, 16th Sust. Bde., exhorted new non-commissioned officers to take their responsibilities seriously during the ceremony. "Leaders are professional Soldiers that know and exude Army values. You are the very first level of authority, training, discipline and leadership in your unit. You will lead from the front, set the example and never - I stress this - you will never ask your Soldiers to do anything that you have not already done or will not do yourself."
