He joined the march to remember and commemorate the sacrifices of the people of Kastamonu, and not forget the struggle to gain the War of Independence, the turning point of our national independence. Held in every year in June, the “Independence Road March” was attended by many people from Turkey and the world. The march was held alternately in both directions every two years, one year from Kastamonu to Inebolu, and the other year from Inebolu to Kastamonu. The march which started by gathering in front of the monument of Martyr Şerife Bacı, one of the heroes of Independence, ended in the town of Inebolu. Our ancestors’ invaluable efforts, grandfathers, and grandmothers in transporting ammunition to the front under very difficult conditions, with oxen and even on their laps, were remembered throughout the march. He stayed in his tent in the nights during his 100-mile journey for 4 days. When he finished the march, acknowledging the fact our debt to our ancestors could not be paid, however, he felt that he understood better the value of the lands we lived in. They rest in peace, he thought.
