It's that time again! The baking gals are at it again....time for round 6!
Captain Turner is a CH-53D helicopter pilot for HMH-362 (Ugly Angels) based out of Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Oahu. He is stationed at Al Asad, Iraq. His missions as a helicopter pilot is mainly transporting "bullets, beans & bandaids".... moving supplies and troops where ever they need to go.
This is his 2nd tour to Iraq. He and his wife (me) have been married for over 5 years and have 3 kids, and one on the way...which he will probably not be back for in time for the birth. But hopefully a few short weeks after!
He grew up in a small town in Iowa and flew helicopters with his dad, who was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam for the Marine Corps, and also, ironically enough, for the Ugly Angels, the same squadron his son is in now! His dad owned a helicopter business, doing heavy lifing and spraying crops, so he grew up in helicopters.
Once returning from Iraq, Captain Turner has the honor of flying for HMX-1 and possibly flying President Obama in Marine One on his next tour.
We are all very proud of Captain Turner and miss him so much already. Please join Team Ugly Angel and the baking gals and send him some love by baking up some goodies for him this Valentine's season!
