Mother Joins Son in Military Service

By  | 

Thirty-eight-year-old Holly Miller is a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard's 1158th Transportation Company. Miller leaves this week for an 18-month tour of duty. It'll include a year overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Miller says she wants to show her son she supports him in his service. Her 20-year-old son, Private First Class Eric Krueger, left last August for deployment to Kuwait.

Miller's husband may also end up overseas. He recently completed a year in the National Guard after serving in the Air Force.
