Attention to orders

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. -- Staff Sgts. Daniel Perry (front) and Ray Bradshaw bear the Air Force sword for the Order of the Sword ceremony Sept. 13. Several hundred airmen gathered here to honor and pay tribute to the 20th secretary of the Air Force, Dr. James G. Roche. The Order of the Sword is the highest honor Air Force noncommissioned officers can give to an individual and is patterned after two orders of chivalry founded during the Middle Ages in Europe. Perry is assigned to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and Bradshaw is assigned to Kadena Air Base, Japan. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Jim Varhegyi)
