Col. Michael V. Krueger died Tuesday of unknown causes. The
47-year-old officer came to McConnell in May 2008.
He previously served as chief of the programs division at Headquarters Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
Col. James Vechery, the 22nd Air Refueling Wing commander, says in a news release that Krueger epitomized the wingman concept as he
was always by his side. He says he was his confidant, mentor and
Krueger leaves behind two sons and his widow.
