WORLDS LARGEST WHEAT SEED PROGRAM IS LAUNCHED- WHEAT WAS HARVESTED IN CUKUROVA REGION OF TURKEY JUNE 2. HARVESTING IS ORDINARILY CONSIDERED THE CULMINATION OF AN AGRICULTURAL PROCESS.

A NATION WHICH HAS HAD TO IMPORT MORE THAN 400,000 TONS OF WHEAT ANNUALLY, TURKEY CONFIDENTLY EXPECTS THAT BY USING THE NEW SEED SUCCESSFULLY SHE WILL HAVE A MILLION-TON SURPLUS WITHIN TWO YEARS--AND CAN THEN BEGIN EXPORTING WHEAT TO HUNGRY NATIONS.

LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. --

In the early 1600s, Pilgrims celebrated and gave thanks as they had finally received rain, ending their drought, and providing them with a grand harvest.

As you prepare for this weekend and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday filled with unique family traditions, consider your grand harvest of life and how your seeds of personal and professional growth are flourishing.

Take a moment to reflect upon your accomplished goals and lessons learned, and remember to show gratitude to family and friends, for without them, we may not have been as successful.

Let’s set a plan for the next season of growth through hard work and perseverance, so we may continue to experience a grand harvest.

"None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy." — Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

If we have gratitude in our hearts and lives and we freely give appreciation to others, our path will be full of strong connections and positivity. Be sure to connect with your fellow Airmen every day, especially during the upcoming holiday season.

Ensure every member has a family environment to enjoy as we continue to forge and fight for greatness together.
