  • His country called, and Maurice Turner answered by serving as a radioman with the U.S. Air Force in New Guinea during World War II.
    He came home counting himself lucky to have done so, but also with a lifelong passion for aeronautics and electronics.
    Now it was time for others to answer: Staff and volunteers with the Rice Hospice program, Willmar Ambulance, Kandiyohi County Veterans Service Office, and Turner's family commemorated his contributions in a way that could not have been more fitting.
    "Tremendous,'' is how Turner, 93, of Willmar, described his personal tour Thursday of the Fagen Fighters World War II Museum south of Granite Falls.
