Nevada Guardsman Receives Battlefield Promotion

U.S. Army 1st Lt. Stewart Brough, Kunar Provincial Reconstruction Team security force platoon leader (left), newly promoted U.S. Army Sgt. David Ellis, PRT security force gunner and driver deployed from the Nevada National Guard's 1st Squadron, 221st Cavalry Regiment (center), and U.S. Army Sgt. Brandon Copley (right) come to the position of attention during a battlefield promotion ceremony, Jan. 1. Ellis was promoted under the battlefield promotion program, which gives commanders a special tool to recognize enlisted soldiers for doing their jobs above and beyond what is expected of them under combat conditions. Final approval for these promotions is the commander of U.S. Army Central Command. Nearly a 1,000 active duty, Reserve and National Guard soldiers have received battlefield promotions to staff sergeant and below since April 2008. To qualify for battlefield promotion, soldiers must be serving in a position and demonstrate the skills of the rank to which they're being promoted.
