WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Former Air Force Chief of Staff  and retired Gen. Norton Schwartz was presented the 2017 Lt. Gen. Glenn A. Kent Leadership Award by Kevin Williams, director of Air Force Studies, Analyses and Assessments, at the Pentagon, July 13, 2018.

The annual award is presented to influential leaders who have had essential analytic responsibilities during their career and made a significant impact on the achievements of the Air Force analytical community.

“The key descriptors that define General Kent’s legacy are leadership, vision, significance and a lasting impact…[these] are what General Schwartz demonstrated exceptionally well throughout his career,” Williams said.

As Chief of Staff from 2008 to 2012, Schwartz brought an analytical dimension to major decisions that impacted the highest levels of the Department of Defense. He guided the Air Force into the future while dealing with large reductions in funding driven by the Budget Control Act of 2011. Schwartz anticipated the importance of multi-domain operations with an air-sea battle initiative in collaboration with the Navy, and advanced the capability and capacity of remotely piloted aircraft missions.

“General Schwartz, in all of these challenges…you empowered and leveraged the analytic community across the Air Force to ensure the solid basis of facts and logic drove good decisions,” Williams said. “In doing so, like General Kent, you served as an inspiration to us.”
