Christmas just got a little brighter for Returning Heroes Home as the non-profit organization makes additions to its 6-acre recreational and therapeutic park to serve wounded warriors and their families. The nonprofit received a $50,000 gift from TETCO and the Tom Turner Family Foundation, which presented the check to Returning Heroes Home on Dec. 14 at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort hotel.

“Returning Heroes Home is especially grateful to TETCO and the Turner family for their unwavering support of our mission,” said Steve Huffman, president of Returning Heroes Home. “Their financial support has helped us make a tremendous, positive impact in the lives of thousands of wounded warriors and their families.”

To date, TETCO has donated $320,000 to Returning Heroes Home. “The Turner family has always been huge supporters of the military, and we are grateful to our troops who risk their lives every day to ensure that we enjoy peace and freedom at home,” said Jon Turner, TETCO vice chairman.

The Recreational and Therapeutic Park at Fort Sam Houston will provide expanded physical therapy opportunities for wounded warriors in recovery by adding numerous outdoor fitness opportunities. It also will offer areas for rest and relaxation, as well as an area for families of the wounded to spend time together in an outdoor setting near their living quarters and in a non-public area to provide privacy during their recovery, among others.
