"I think it’s going to help everybody put this to rest atsome point. Kind of get the grieving process started," he said.
Patriot Guard Riders led the walkers to the park in a show ofsupport for Sgt. Krueger and her family.
"This is extremely important for the patriot guard to be herebut also for the community to be here to support this family. Imean their loss, it’s a devastating thing for them to gothrough. And it’s very important that they know that evenothers they don’t even know are coming to share in their lossand support them," said Patriot Guard Ride Captain MichaelWeaver.
A former school mate of Sgt. Krueger’s, Heather Seehaver,said while it is difficult to be reminded of the young soldiersloss, it's important to be at the vigil.
