Tetreault receives Navy promotion

Navy Seaman Apprentice Anna C. Tetreault, daughter of Jennifer A. and Gregory J. Tetreault of Hartselle, was recently promoted to her current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.

Tetreault received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.

The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Its distinctly Navy flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Tetreault is a 2009 graduate of Danville High School of Danville.
