Combat kills another female soldier in Afghanistan

Pfc. Renee Sinkler, 23, of Chadbourn, N.C., was the second woman soldier to die in combat since the 109th Transportation Co., known as the "Rough Riders" was deployed to Afghanistan in July. A gunner, she was in the exposed turret of an armored MRAP vehicle when it was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade, the Army said.
