U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Gentry W. Boswell (right) passed the “swagger stick” to Brig. Gen. Jeremy T. Sloane during a change of command ceremony July 8, 2020, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Maj. Gen. Charles J. Bondley, Jr., designed the original emblem for the 36th Wing, then known as the 36th Pursuit Group, in 1940 when he was a 1st. Lt, and had the emblem officially emblazoned on the swagger stick. The stick signifies strength and the legacy of honor that all Airmen represent and is passed from commander to commander. It has since been a proud tradition that has endured for eighty years, and will continue to do so into the future. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Divine Cox)
