Webster woman sends cold milk to soldiers in Iraq

That’s what Maj. Roy Fuhrmann — a 45-year-old Minnesota farm boy serving in Iraq — should have been drinking with the Christmas goodies his wife sent. Kim Fuhrmann couldn’t believe her husband was drinking Gatorade when she chatted with him via Web cam last month.

Roy Fuhrmann, a Blackhawk helicopter pilot in the 34th Combat Aviation Brigade, drinks a gallon or more of milk a day when he’s home in Webster. He said the troops’ irradiated milk, which has a long shelf life, just didn’t hit the spot.
