From the wiki:

Iron Will - §200

Soldiers receive a larger Will bonus each time they are promoted.
(Adds between 2-10 extra Will increases per promotion on top of the default +2)

Does this bonus of 2-10 occur randonly or is it based on something like performance during the mission(s)?

I've been tracking it and so far there does not seem to be a pattern, it does indeed seem completely random. – Maxx Oct 22 '12 at 21:10

After some further testing, it appears that the amount of Will received as a bonus during promotions is random, within the range of 2-10. This means you will always get at least +4 Will from a promotion, with the possibility of anything upto +12.
