Sgt. David Ellis, a Kunar Provincial Reconstruction Team security force gunner and driver deployed from the Nevada National Guard's 1st Squadron, 221st Calvary Regiment, conducts an interview about receiving a battlefield promotion, 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.
