Incirlik Air Base commemorates 20th anniversary of 9/11
Master Sgt. Joseph Blake, 39th Security Forces Squadron acting first sergeant, prays during a moment of silence at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, Sept. 11, 2021, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. Col. Jason Gingrich, 39th Air Base Wing commander, and other Airmen across the wing delivered remarks during the event, which also included a commemorative bell ringing to honor fallen firefighters and a remembrance walk/run. The event serves as a tribute to the nearly 3,000 lives lost when terrorists hijacked four commercial aircraft, resulting in the deadliest terrorist act in U.S. history. The 39th ABW is committed to remembering and honoring the victims of 9/11, while remaining united and resolved to protect the U.S. and its freedoms. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
