It's been in our house for maybe more than a hundred years. I figured I'd call and ask instead of just sitting there on dusty shelves. I called and was very well received. I like it so much. I rushed to bring the memories. In our house, there is a rule that says 'The Medal of Independence goes to the eldest son of the house'. It was inherited from my father. I have a son, but it seemed more correct to donate it to İzmir in memory of a hundred years. I hope that many young people like my son will see and feel emotional and protect the values ​​of this nation. It's better like this. Let's take it off the dusty shelves, donate it to museums.
