332d Air Expeditionary Wing Warrior of the Week: Staff Sgt. Kelly Pletz

  • 332d Air Expeditionary Wing Judge Advocate

The 332d Air Expeditionary Wing’s Warrior of the Week of August 22 is Staff Sgt. Kelly Pletz, 332d Judge Advocate Non-Commissioned Officer In Charge.


Pletz services all intake, notaries and power-of-attorney requests for her office, performing all the duties of a paralegal at a law firm. She has also taken charge on an organizational level, delivering briefings, tracking office progress, writing reports and coordinating with local forces.


She says that her work ethic was spurred on by the fast-paced nature of the operational environment. “We both came in with a lot of things on our plate, not just moving forward but things we came into. You have to, from day one, start working together as a team.”


Pletz likes to travel and enjoys kayaking, hiking, going to the beach and trying new restaurants. After her tour she intends to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Management, transfer to the Reserves and start a family.


Warrior of the Week is a competitive recognition program that highlights significant contributions made by individual Airmen who raise the Red Tail standard and enhance the mission and capabilities of the 332d Air Expeditionary Wing.
