Tetreau's Brother Joins Fairfield's Honor Wall

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Interim First Selectman Michael Tetreau welcomed his brother, Lt. Col. William Tetreau, home from Afghanistan with a special honor. Col. Tetreau, the Army’s director of Combined Joint Intelligence Directorate Resources, returned to Fairfield on leave this week to find his name listed on the town’s Honor Wall, which celebrates Fairfield residents who have served in the military.

The Honor Wall sits on Fairfield’s Town Hall Green, facing the Old Post Road. It was originally built in 1945 specifically for the hundreds of Fairfielders who served in World War II. But in 1960 the deteriorated structure was rebuilt and expanded. It now includes Fairfield residents who fought in conflicts dating from World War I to the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Michael Tetreau said part of the reason he decided to honor his brother in a public ceremony is to draw attention to the Honor Wall. He said he did not even know the criteria for having a name listed before taking office in June.

“It’s how we give our respect and our thanks for the men and women who are sacrificing their lives,” Tetreau said. “I think there are more names that should be up there.”

The only qualification for listing on the Honor Wall is to have served in one of the conflicts featured on the memorial, and to have been or be a Fairfield resident while enlisted. If you think you or a loved one would qualify, contact Nancy Fray in the first selectman’s office, (203) 256-3030, for more information on the application process.
