Staff Sgt.Alexandria Tetreault: Mentoring every chance she gets

By: John M. Rosenberg, Warrior Care and Transition

Staff Sgt. Alexandria Tetreault, squad leader at Fort Carson, Warrior Transition Battalion, is a volunteer working with victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Engagement with the local community has proven highly valuable in the recovery and transition of wounded, ill and injured Soldiers.

Staff Sgt. Alexandria Tetreault has a self-described passion for working with people who need a helping hand, especially women and children. Currently assigned to the Fort Carson Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB), Tetreault has devoted many hours to assisting the Colorado Springs district attorney office, working with victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

For wounded, ill and injured Soldiers assigned to a WTB or Community Care Unit, engagement with the local community can prove most valuable, both for the community at-large as well as for themselves.

Whether one is receiving support or lending their support, engagement with the local community is an important component of the transition process for Soldiers during recovery, post-injury or illness and reintegration. It is at the heart of the Warrior Care and Transition Program, which is why WTBs encourage Soldiers to engage with surrounding communities.

In addition to aiding the local community, Tetreault says that she enjoys anything and everything associated with increasing the esprit de corps within the U.S. Army. Since 2015, she has served as squad leader, taking care of and assisting service members with their transition either back to active duty or transition to civilian life. Tetreault says it’s of paramount importance to her “ensuring that each and every Soldier is on his or her path to success and is being treated with the utmost dignity and respect.”

Prior to her WTB assignment Tetreault was a Non-Commissioned Officer In-Charge (NCOIC) of the Personnel Actions Command as well as the NCOIC for Legal with the 60th Ordnance Company.

Tetreault’s goals include being inducted into the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club and retiring from the Army as a command sergeant major. The Connecticut native intends to complete a Doctorate in Sociology at Colorado State University, with which she is determined to continue her community service by volunteering as a sociologist for non-profit organizations.

“I am a true believer that personal growth in life can be attributed to how much you have raised, taught, and led others,” says Tetreault. “Your growth is only limited to your experience, therefore, I mentor others, both in and out of the Military every chance that I get.”
