Minnesota Nice continues tradition of giving to soldiers

Linda Krueger’s basement once again looks like a mini version of a busy department store — piles of goods waiting to be sorted and packaged, while already packed boxes are stacked up, ready to be shipped out to soldiers who are deployed away from home for the holidays.
As the packages are shipped out, thank yous are quickly returning via email and regular mail.
Some samples:
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the package you sent me,” wrote Sadaya Johnson, a 31-year-old soldier who also is a wife and mother of two girls. Johnson is stationed in Georgia.
“This is my first time being away from my family for such a long duration of time and I miss them terribly,” Johnson added.
“Thank you for your support and your community service for me and other deployed troops,” she wrote. “It’s an awesome feeling to know that someone (besides our families) cares and appreciates what we do in support of our country.”
Sgt. Eugene Wangerin and Krueger have established a bond after Wangerin sent a note thanking her for the care package.
