City applauds, thanks longtime fireman for his service to Seguin

(Seguin) -- The Seguin City Council is thanking a long time member of the city's fire department. Battalion Chief Rusty Krueger has officially hung up his helmet after more than 30 years on the job. 

Mayor Don Keil personally thanked Krueger for his dedication to the job during this week's meeting of the Seguin City Council.
"Being a firefighter is a tough thing. It's hard on  your body. It's hard on  your marriage. It is hard virtually on everything. I mean it's physical and it's tough, tough life but these guys seem to love it and just stay with it and endure it and to have such a great and lustrous career for 33 years is a great accomplishment so thank you very much for what you have done for the city," said Keil.
Krueger thanked the council for the honor on Tuesday night. He says he loved being part of the Seguin fire service community.
"It's been a great ride. The city has been really good to me. I have to thank my family once again. I've got some old time firefighters. They are okay if I call them that. My former Chief Scotty MyCue is here and one of my old volunteers that helped me early on in my career -- I want to thank them for being here. I thank my family, my kids, my wife Carol. Without you, I couldn't do what I did because of the holidays and all those things that you miss. Thank you Chief Skinner. It's been a great ride. I'm going to miss you brother. Thanks to everybody for coming out to support me in my career," said Krueger.
Mayor Keil got a chuckle from the audience when he formally introduced Krueger as Carl. Someone jokingly shouted "who's that?" That's because Krueger, who is well known in the community, is mostly known only as Rusty. Krueger worked for the Seguin Fire/EMS Department for 33 and half years.
