U.S. Airmen, Turkish airmen honor ‘Father of Turkey’

Senior Airman Steven Lacefield, 39th Logistics Readiness Squadron logistics plans journeyman, and Staff Sgt. Michael Sheppard, 39th LRS vehicle maintenance core contracting officer representative, lay a wreath in honor of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk Nov. 10, 2013, at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey. Every year on the day and time that Ataturk died, all of Turkey pauses for a two-minute moment of silence to honor him. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Chase Hedrick/Released)
