KIEL (WKOW) -- A public visitation is set for Friday, November 13 at Kiel High School.
Army Reserve Staff Sgt. Amy Krueger was one of two Wisconsin soldiers killed last week at Fort Hood, Texas.
Krueger's parents released the following statement to the media.
"We would like to thank everyone for the truly amazing outpouring of love and support you have given our family. Not only all of you here in our hometown, but from those of you across the nation. We can feel your embrace.
Amy was a wonderful daughter. She was always so strong, determined and powerful. She would set her goals and achieve them usually accomplishing two or three at a time.
We are so grateful that God chose us to give her life because she truly was a gift to ours.
Amy was highly competitive in all sports. From middle school until just prior to her recent deployment she competed in basketball, swimming, volleyball, softball and pool.
She was always available to friends and family. Through her own care and support was an exceptional role model, not only to her many cousins and her niece, but to all who met her.
Her smile would light up any room, her energy would envelope all of those around her. It is that smile and that energy that keeps us going throughout this difficult time. Carry on, our brave soldier."
