Local soldiers get Christmas gifts thanks to family of fallen comrade
Some Minnesota National Guard soldiers in Iraq will receive a special Christmas present.
Stuffed stockings are headed to about 200 troops, compliments of fallen Spc. Daniel Drevnick's family.
Relatives and friends of Drevnick, a Woodbury native who was in Iraq with his Rosemount-based 34th Red Bull Infantry Division when he died in a July rocket blast, filled stockings with treats, toiletries and photos for other Red Bull troops.
