19 September Message of Rector Prof. Dr. Tarık Yarılgaç
History consciousness, love of the country and love of the flag above all of the superiority of the enemy to keep the fight against the eyes of the hero veterans, as in the past, as well as in the future will be remembered with gratitude and honour, will always be deemed worthy of the highest levels. Our heroes who did allow malice focals who wanted to destroy our nation for centuries, from Malazgirt to our lands in the War of Independence and finally to the victory of our nation on the night of July 15, in the attempt of a traitorous coup, struggling at the cost of their lives and reaching the office of martyrdom and veteran; The pride of our country is the living monument of sacrifice and patriotism. Our veterans, who put together the foundations of our unity and solidarity with our saints, together with the martyrs of our nation, are undoubtedly worthy of pride in our effort to maintain our unity and to live a life in peace and brotherhood.
The visit of Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk to our province on 19 September 1924, which was on his trip to the country in order to determine the needs of the nation which was devastated and tired, and to strengthen the hopes of our nation towards the future. Although 94 years have passed, it is still felt in our city.
Due to this important day, which has a separate meaning for our nation and the military, we are gratefully grateful to the Great Leader, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and his fellow soldiers and martyrs. I would like to express my gratitude to the veterans who have laid their lives for the peace and security of our nation.
