VILSECK, Germany – Eleven Troopers from 3d Squadron, 2d Cavalry Regiment got a different taste of Turkey this holiday season by participating in U.S. Army Europe’s Theater Security Exchange program. Members of Hawk Company spent Dec. 1 – 13 in the Republic of Turkey learning about the culture and training with the military. The trip proved to be an eye-opening experience for all those involved.

“This is what I joined the military to do,” said 1st Lt. Alexander Frank, Hawk Co. Platoon Leader, “I’ve always wanted to meet Soldiers from other places, train with their military, see what their tactics and techniques are like and just get to know people from other countries.” Frank said he was very impressed in the quiet professionalism he observed among his Turkish hosts.
