Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Fort Hood 13: Sgt. Amy Krueger

(Taken from and It is a quiet, somber Sunday afternoon in Kiel but as the town mourns the loss of Staff Sgt. Amy Krueger, Patte Puetz says this small community is pulling together to help each other in this tough time.

"The community has been pulled together immensely because of this."

Flags and signs like this one being put up by Patte Puetz are all over town, remembering the Amy Krueger known and loved here in Kiel and the Staff Sgt. Amy Krueger whose tragic death at Ft. Hood on Thursday leaves a town and a nation without one of its hero's. A hero Puetz says will be missed.

"If it would be for Amy Krueger's it would be a lot sadder place to live and we need Amy Krueger's but we shouldn't have to lose Amy Krueger's the way we lost her."

Others like Ryan Lutze who knew Amy say her death hit her home town hard.

"Everybody I know is having a rough time with it."

"I think that since everyone does know everyone in the community, everyone is very close and I think this is the time that everyone needs to pull together and be there for each other" added Lutze's wife Pam.

Even though Staff Sgt. Krueger won't be protecting her family and friends overseas, Puetz knows she'll be watching over them from above.

Krueger, 29, of Kiel, Wis., joined the Army after the 2001 terrorist attacks and had vowed to take on Osama bin Laden, her mother, Jeri Krueger said.

Amy Krueger arrived at Fort Hood on Tuesday and was scheduled to be sent to Afghanistan in December, her mother told the Herald Times Reporter of Manitowoc.

Jeri Krueger recalled telling her daughter that she could not take on bin Laden by herself.

"Watch me," her daughter replied.

Kiel High School Principal Dario Talerico told The Associated Press that Krueger graduated from the school in 1998 and had spoken at least once to local elementary school students about her career.

"I just remember that Amy was a very good kid, who like most kids in a small town are just looking for what their next step in life was going to be and she chose the military," Talerico said. "Once she got into the military, she really connected with that kind of lifestyle and was really proud to serve her country."
