Hodges: Turkish army is unbelievable
NATO Army Commander Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges praised the Turkish army on Thursday in the western province of Izmir. "Turkey played a critical role in Kabul. The Turkish army is unbelievable. Everyone trusts them. At the same time they are so disciplined. At all NATO missions that I have been in charge of, I have chosen to work with Turkish officers and authorities. Turkish people have to be really proud of this," Hodges said. "Turkey has always been a country which has made a big contribution to NATO. I am impressed by the exceptionally talented and experienced soldiers from across the alliance. Turkish officers here have decades of experience in Afghanistan, Libya and the Balkans," Hodges added.
