November 9th, 2005, marked a day of infamy at Fort Hood Army Base in Texas. The niece of Milwaukee Team Leader Dan Kreuger, SSG Amy Krueger, was one of 13 killed that day. In her honor, and to honor all those who serve and have made the ultimate sacrifice, Kruegsfest was born. The 2017 event was well attended with music from The Charlie Bucket Band (consisting of our very own Dan Krueger), FEATherWOLF (consisting of one of Amy's many cousins), and SugarNova (consisting of a few of Amy's cousins).
Together, with over 200 attendees, Kruegsfest raised over $2,000 for Camo Quilt of Plymouth (https://camoquiltproject.wordpress.com) and the Fisher House of Wisconsin (www.fisherhousewi.org). VTI Security served as the stage sponsor and as a continuation of our corporate commitment to the Fisher House, contributed to the success of this great event.
Philanthropy is more than just a charitable donation. In collaboration with our Colleagues and the organizations they champion, we work to create a personal, measurable difference in the communities where we live and work. To be able to support Dan and his extended family is one we are very thankful for. Happy Veterans Day. God Bless our Troops. God Bless America.
