I like to leave this extract every time ANZAC Day comes around.
It's attributed to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder and first president of the Republic of Turkey.
Under the Ottoman Empire he was the Colonel tasked with repelling the Allied invasion force from Gallipoli.
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours ... You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well." - Atatürk
Turkish Commander Mustafa Kemal, later given the name "Atatürk" during presidency = "Father of the Turks"

For those that wish to learn more about the Gallipoli Campaign I'd suggest this video, it summarises important details but it's still very informative for a 4 minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qW8O_sisf4I
Alternatively, this is longer however more detailed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeAPkEl8hHg
