    HULMAN FIELD AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ind. — A longtime Racer earned the rank of chief master sergeant during a Chief’s Induction Ceremony September 16 at Hulman Field Air National Guard Base.

    Chief Master Sgt. Jeffery, a multi-intelligence supervisor assigned to the 137th Intelligence Squadron, was recognized by fellow chief master sergeants during the ceremony.

    Only 2 percent of Air National Guard enlisted personnel attain the rank of chief master sergeant, said Chief Master Sgt. Robert G. Beasley, the command chief master sergeant of the 181st Intelligence Wing.

    The ceremony itself is seeped with tradition.

    “It’s a big deal,” said Beasley. “It’s a deep tradition not just in the wing but in the Air Force.”

    The ceremony included the presentation of a charge posed to new chief master sergeants about what it means to be a chief, said Beasley. The charge reaffirms why we serve.

    Additionally, Jeffery’s fellow chief master sergeants recognized his hard work.

    Not only did Jeffery successfully execute his duties in his area of responsibility, but he also voluntarily took care of another area, said the superintendent of the 181st Intelligence Group. That speaks to his character.
    Members of the 137th IS, other chief master sergeants assigned to the 181st IW, members of the 181st Student Flight and friends and family attended the ceremony.

    (In accordance with current Air Force guidance, the last name of 181 ISR group members have been omitted.)
