Três Corações / MG – On March 7, 2019, the NCO Academy held three important ceremonies: Historic Gate Entrance by the New Students, Sergeant Max Wolf Filho Saber Award and the transmission of the Historic Standard of the School.
The Saber, which was awarded to the 559 students of the NCO Academy and the 32 students of the Army Aviation Center, resembles the one used by Sergeant Max Wolf Filho during the 1930 and 1932 Revolutions, similar to the one used in the School uniform of Sergeants in 1894. Saber Max Wolf represents courage, patriotism and love for the profession and military values shown by Sergeant Max Wolf Filho and many other heroes of the Brazilian Expeditionary Force.
