Trump: Generals Singled out Turkish Soldiers’ Bravery During Korean War

Turkish soldiers fought bravely alongside of American soldiers in the Korean War, and we haven’t forgotten what they did.  In some ways, when we looked at their great bravery in the fight of Korea — and in Korea, it was just something that our soldiers and our great generals still remember.  Supreme Commander General Douglas MacArthur singled out and praised the exemplary valor of the Turkish soldier — said, some of the great soldiers of the world.
