Anthony Cotton (center left), commander of Air Force Global Strike Command and Air Forces Strategic-Air, U.S. Strategic Command, into AETC’s Order of the Sword during a ceremony at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., April 1, 2022. Cotton was the Air University commander and president from February 2018-October 2019. The Order of the Sword is the highest honor and tribute that noncommissioned officers can bestow upon an individual and is patterned after two orders of chivalry founded during the Middle Ages in Europe, The Royal Order of the Sword and the Swedish Military Order of the Sword.
