'The greatest smile in the world'
My sister, Staff Sergeant Corey Fink, just celebrated her 30th birthday in Iraq. She is due home in February 2008 after her 15 month long tour of duty is done. She's been in the Army for 6 years, has her MBA, and has the greatest smile in the world. She is my hero. I hope she knows that.
