Dyess conducts Air Force’s first assumption of the stole
A stole hangs during the assumption of the stole ceremony at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas Mar. 24, 2021. Much like the tradition of assuming command, assuming the stole – a long, operational camouflaged pattern cloth worn around the neck – signifies the acceptance of responsibility as the new spiritual leader in a new place of service within the U.S. Air Force.
