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.
