KIEL, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  An eastern Wisconsin soldier will be buried today, ten days after she was shot and killed at her Army base in Kosovo. A funeral service begins at 5pm for 33-year-old Sergeant Heidi Ruh of rural Kiel. Visitations begin at 1pm at Saint Peter's Church of Christ in Kiel, where the service will take place.

The Pentagon has still not announced her death, as it remains under investigation.

Her family said Ruh spent 11 years in the Army, and she repaired surgical machines in a medical unit.
