When Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of our country, our Great Leader, passed away on November 10, 1938, he had deplored not only us but the whole world. Because, in his short life, he managed to gain the respect of the world as a whole with his characteristics as well as his achievements and vision in addition to his military identity.
