Ankara from a hill perspective
It’s been nine years since we made our around-the-world journey to live in Ankara, Turkey. It’s a time I will always cherish, but I didn’t know that then. On this day that we set aside to celebrate our nation’s independence, I’m reminded of the lessons we learn, not at home, but by journeying far from it. As much as we grew to love Turkey, we also learned to appreciate the tremendous gift of freedom we enjoy just by virtue of being U.S. citizens. I am grateful for so much, not least is the opportunity to breathe free on U.S. soil. I hope you will continue to take this journey with me in “Strangers in a Strange Land, Part II” (“7,000 miles from home”) under “My Air Force Life”. Happy Fourth of July!
