DoD Announces Installation Realignment in Turkey

The Department of Defense announced today that the United States would cease operations at the Yumurtalik Sea Terminal, Turkey.

Due to U.S. European Command force structure realignment and transformation, the Yumurtalik Sea Terminal’s jet fuel receipt point facility has been identified as excess to U.S. Air Forces Europe’s needs and will begin the process to be returned to the host nation.

This action will affect one U.S. service member and two host nation employees.  As with all stationing actions, the United States has coordinated with host nation officials before this announcement.
