As a young gal growing up just down the street from the Krueger's I had the great opportunity to see George and family frequently.

We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Krueger last year at 302nd reunion. He was in the 302nd squadron with Scott's grandfather and shared many stores with us. We really enjoyed it and will always remember this wonderful man. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family at this time. Sincerely, The Dawsons
