Theresa Krueger of Perryville enjoys going out to eat. But the restaurant meal she has this weekend will be the "most special ever."
"When Kevin gets home, and I expect it to be Friday or so, I plan to take him out to eat. That's going to be our little celebration," said Krueger this morning.
Kevin is Krueger's 20-year-old, Pfc. Kevin M. Krueger, and the celebration will be a homecoming meal to mark his return from Iraq where he served with the Danville-based 217th Quartermaster Detachment Water Purification Unit of the Kentucky Army National Guard. He and seven other members of the unit arrived at Ft. Campbell Tuesday afternoon after spending more than a year on active duty, most of that time in Iraq.
Arriving at Ft. Campbell with Krueger were fellow 217th soldiers Sgt. Wendell D. Miller, Sgt. Garland H. Sapp, Spec. James E. Herren, Spc. Richard T. Herren, Spc. Ernest W. Mobley and Spc. Michael A. Dean. The eight Guardsmen have been granted brief leaves and then will return to Ft. Campbell where they will go through processing over a period of up two weeks.
