Sterling had been stationed on Guam since July 2009 when she reported to USS Frank Cable (AS 40) and had just recently transferred to NCTS Guam in May 2012.
“Information Technician 2nd Class Sterling was one of the most well liked Sailors at our command. In the time that we knew her, she was never seen with anything less than an
optimistic approach and a smile to everything that she did,” said NCTS Guam Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Randal Fuller,. “Her loss is devastating to us here at NCTS Guam. She will be sorely missed.”
Sterling is originally from Bellevue, WA and enlisted in the Navy on 1 August 2000. Her tours included NCTS Keflavik, Iceland, USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), and Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station (NCTAMS) Pacific before transferring to Guam. She was awarded The Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, and Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary and Service Medals.
