Sinha, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves, was commissioned to work in the preventive medicine medical services corp for rebuilding efforts in the areas of water and sewage and sanitation. Sinha received his master's degree in Occupational Safety and Industrial Hygiene from NJIT in 2002. He has returned to his full-time position at Picatinny Arsenal, where he is employed as a packaging engineer, and is continuing his part-time doctoral studies at NJIT. Sinha enjoyed the work he accomplished in Iraq as well as the sense of fulfillment that comes from helping others. “There is a risk,” he says, “But the mission has to get done.”
