A Lifetime of Service

Mehmet Birbiri (center), 39th Air Base Wings Public Affairs host nation advisor, goes over the script with base leadership and honor guard team members in preparation for the Atatürk Memorial Day ceremony Nov. 10, 2023, at Incirlik Air Base, Türkiye. As Birbiri contemplates retirement as he nears 50 years of service at Incirlik, he knows his time may soon come to an end, but that won’t stop him from imparting more nuggets of wisdom to those he encounters.
