Family Says Wisconsin Soldier Killed in Kosovo

The Army is investigating the death of a soldier from eastern Wisconsin.

 Her family said 33-year-old Sergeant Heidi Ruh of rural Kiel was shot and killed last Friday at a base in Kosovo where she was stationed.  Relatives were not told what happened.  The Pentagon had not announced the death as of this morning.  Ruh's father Scott tells WLUK T-V in Green Bay that her daughter was an 11-year Army veteran, and she repaired surgical machines in a medical unit.  Scott Ruh said Heidi began her Kosovo assignment in February.  She spent eight years at Fort Hood Texas, including the 2009 massacre in which another Kiel resident -- Amy Krueger -- was killed.  Ruh and Krueger were a year apart in their class groups at Kiel High School.  Ruh's family plans a public memorial service once her body is returned to Wisconsin.

    We have to face many incidents and accidents on daily basis all over the world and need some source to stay up to date. Radio is most appropriate source as per my observation that is available every where no matter you are driving somewhere or busy in office. We are managingbest essay services and stay busy in doing research all the time and use this medium to stay aware of what's happening around us.
