Ceremony Commemorating the Çanakkale Victory and Martyrs’ Day
A soldier changes the destiny of his nation. Lieutenant Colonel Mustafa Kemal, the commander of the 19th Infantry Division: “Men, I am not ordering you to attack. I am ordering you to die. In the time that it takes us to die, other forces and commanders can come and take our place.” This is a victory won by sacrifice. We commemorate with profound respect and gratitude the great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and all the martyrs who left us this beautiful country at the cost of their lives.
