Commander Turner's Project



Rick is a charter member of Squardron 148, Medway and life member of the Sons of AMVETS. Married to PDP Pat Turner for 22 years, together they are  parents of seven children and proud grandparents of 12. Prior to working on the Department level, Rick dedicated his time as Commander on the local level and as a 1st District Officer.


Rick has chosen “Kevin’s House” as his Commander’s project. It is part of the Valor Clinic Organization, a 501 © 3 Public Charity. A former schoolhouse, it was donated by Vaughn and Linda Richards, located in the Village of Fallsburg in rural Licking County. Rehabilitation of the facility to function as a Homeless Veterans Recovery Center. Currently they are asking for donations and skilled craftsmen to work on the schoolhouse. The second phase will be apartments for homeless veterans.


The Valor program believes the road home for some Veterans is disrupted by the emotional scars of war. The statistics of life crisis which effect returning Veterans are staggering. Methods used to navigate the road to readjustment for the Veterans beginning with common ground. They must commit to the program and themselves to work towards a better life. “Kevin’s House” will provide structure with schedules and assigned responsibilities, peer support and counseling.


Rick chose this program for the help it will offer many homeless and troubled Veterans for many years, providing education and training for a better future. To volunteer contact Steve Bullock by calling (740) 258-3857. Address for building is 10329 Pleasant Valley Rd. (586), Frazysburg, Ohio
