OL Landon Turner Gives Prized Deployment Gift


Soldiers from the 8th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, 229th Aviation Regiment stationed in Iraq are carrying a special gift—the prized football helmet of one of America’s top high school linemen. Landon Turner, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive guard from Harrisonburg, Va., presented his helmet to members of the battalion at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome in San Antonio in January. The helmet made its way from Texas to Camp Taji, Iraq where it will remain until the unit returns home in late 2011. (Black Anthem)
