TUSLOG Det. 3-2, Samsun and TUSLOG Det. 4, Sinop. 1969-1970

On Memorial Day weekend 2010, my father and I went through some old pictures. My Dad was an airman in the US Air Force Security Service, and was stationed in Turkiye in 1969 and 1970 as an Electronics Intercept Operator.

I recorded some quick notes and comments from my Dad and wanted to share them with you. His comments are in quotations. Click on the images for full-size pictures.

Sinop "down the wall"

"Early morning in Sinop. I traded 2 oranges for their lead batteries so they wouldn't get hurt. They got a kick out of my Turkish"

Between Sinop and Samsun. "hard work"


Sinop "This guy had a pet duck. I kid you not!"

Sinop. "are we safe?"

Sinop. "I asked permission for a picture. He nodded affirmatively."

Sinop "How many footsteps have fallen here?"
