About 500 people from Uşak went to Dumlupınar Martyrdom by train and visited. In the event organized by Uşak Municipality on the occasion of the 18 March Çanakkale Victory and Martyrs' Day, many citizens went to Dumlupınar Martyrs' Cemetery by train.

Citizens who came to Uşak Train Station with Turkish Flags in their hands in the morning set off on the Victory Train, which was rented by Uşak Municipality, after a moment of silence and the singing of the National Anthem.

After about 2 hours, Dumlupınar District Governor Menderes Topçuoğlu and students greeted the crowd, who got off the train that reached the martyrdom in Dumlupınar district of Kütahya. Speaking at the ceremony held at the cemetery, Uşak Deputy Mayor Hakan Uludağ said that the Çanakkale Victory, which was won 100 years ago, was very meaningful for the Turkish nation.

Uludağ said, “We will repeat this event in different periods, we are trying to pay our debt of gratitude to our martyrs by visiting them. If we can live in peace today, it is thanks to our martyrs. About 500 people attended the event. The young, the old and the children all rushed to their martyrs with flags in their hands.” After the speeches, the Quran was read and prayers were said. After the martyrdom visit, the group walked to the district center and visited the Dumlupınar Museum.
