SSG Monica Saint Hill

By U.S. Army
Staff Sergeant Monica St. Hill joined the Army for freedom - freedom from spousal abuse. With her wounds still raw, she asked to be assigned to the military police as a way of reaching and protecting other victims of abuse. "I know the freedom that it brought me, and I like to see people free." While at Camp Shelby, Miss., preparing to deploy to Iraq, she fractured her ankle. During her treatment, St. Hill discovered she had Type II diabetes. Her injury and illness brought her to the Eisenhower Army Medical Center Warriors in Transition Battalion. St. Hill was able to beat her diabetes, and her time in the WTB inspired her to return to active duty as a member of the cadre in the same WTB where she recovered.
