During that same period of time she also graduated from LTC's EMT program and with honors from the CNA program at LTC. In 2008, while pursuing her Bachelors Degree in Psychology at UW Whitewater she volunteered for another mission to Afghanistan and was preparing to deploy in mid-December. Amy enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, shooting pool, playing sheepshead, being social and living every day to the fullest. She was on 2 softball teams and 1 volleyball team. Amy was one of 300 soldiers who were lined up to get shots and eye-testing at the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood when shots rang out. The soldiers were processing to either return from or about to be sent overseas. A disgruntled U.S. Army psychiatrist killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others before he was brought down. Amy died doing what she loved, proudly serving her country.
