The Unknown Soldiers: 'She was ready to take on the world'

The Unknown Soldiers: 'She was ready to take on the world' -

It's been almost five years since Pfc. Amy Bullock Sinkler graduated high school. Yet even to this day, one of her teachers still remembers the look on her face the night she took such an important step toward becoming a productive member of society.

"She had that big smile on her face that she had from the day she walked in here," Brian McClendy, who teaches at West Columbus High School in Cerro Gordo, North Carolina, told WECT-TV. "She had her diploma and she was ready to take on the world with that positive attitude she had."

That's exactly what she did. The Army said Pfc. Sinkler enlisted in August 2009, and was stationed at Alaska's Fort Richardson with the 109th Transportation Company, 17th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 3rd Maneuver Enhancement Brigade. Sinkler, whose maiden name is Bullock, married her high school sweetheart last year and was spending her first months as a newlywed in Alaska before deploying to Afghanistan.
