Fort Campbell, KY – As a convoy of Humvees travels across the dusty plains, Sgt. Jarrod Stegall scans for potential threats. Suddenly his vehicle comes to a halt as a pickup truck comes out from behind a building. Recognizing it as an insurgent vehicle, the vehicle commander shouts to Stegall, “Enemy vehicle 400 meters!”

Receiving the command, he adjusts his traverse and elevation mechanism to the correct settings and engages the target. A few rounds later, the enemy vehicle is destroyed and he radios the vehicle commander to confirm the kill. Satisfied with the engagement the vehicle commander orders the convoy to keep moving.

Now he is a lieutenant colonel and commander of the 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
