In August, 1942, she enlisted in the Women’s Army Corp. in Fort Des Moines, Iowa. She attended Bakers and Cook School in the service and then went to Fort Sheridan, Illinois to cook in the 5th company. On December 25, 1943, she was united in marriage to Jack Edward Nissenbaum in Waukegan, Illinois. In March, 1944, she was discharged from the W.A.A.C. While her husband was serving with the Army, Amy moved with her son to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin where she was employed as a secretary at Milwaukee County Hospital.
