Promotion and Award (James K. Leliveld)
SSgt. Dethfield said:
PFC Leliveld has had an interesting time in SLT. Not only did he take on the responsibility of learning the basics of leadership in the 29th, he also voluntarily took the lead on getting Easy Company's Crewman AIT by being one of the first to take up the position when it was announced. He made the most of it, however, by incorporating both areas in his learning process. He would practice leading crews of vehicles and then apply that experience to leading teams and he did this all while helping establish basic tactics and strategies of operating vehicles in Squad, something that was uncharted territory for our company. Today he stands as a competent, driven leader in EP2 and when the time comes I am sure he will make a fine ASL. Until that time comes, he has earned his Army NCO Professional Development Ribbon and a promotion to Technician, 5th Grade. Excellent work!
