The 2017 Eugene Winston Turner Scholarship was awarded to Robert Duff from Amelia High School. Robert is a tremendous student who will be taking his scholarship to Ohio University to study engineering. Eugene Winston Turner was my great grandfather and served in both WWII and Korea. I did not get the chance to know him, but I believe we were cut from the same cloth. Aaron Banfield from Full Throttle Indoor Karting has endowed the first My GI Foundation Scholarship and we are very gateful to partner with them. Aaron has regular events for veterans and is both generous and kind. We are fortunate to know Aaron and applaud his foundness for American veterans. 

The 2017 My GI Foundation Soldier of The Year Banquet is loaded with youth military organizations, inactive, reserve, and retired military including; a WWII veteran. If I invited you, you are leaving with something. So many that have served will be honored and I am honored to have this oppotunity to say thanks. I fundraise, help veterans financially, put together events for the vets, but banquets are special. We will have a state senator as our guest speaker and so many wonderful vets to honor, especially our Soldier of The Year.

Thank You Senator

On Monday, May 15th, 2017 Senator Joe Uecker was my guest speaker at the 2017 My GI Foundation Soldier of The Year Banquet. Senator Uecker has been kind enough to attend two events I have hosted for my veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
