US Military Travel Restrictions to Turkey Extended

Stars and Stripes reports that the “U.S. Army Europe has implemented a ban on travel to Turkey by Defense Department personnel given growing security concerns in the country.”  

“All military and civilian workers, including those with dual citizenship, are prohibited from unofficial travel through Nov. 9, USAREUR announced on its Facebook page.”  

“Official travel requires general officer approval.”  

“After Nov. 9, unofficial and official travel — including ship-to-shore travel from cruises in Turkey — will also require general officer approval, USAREUR said.”
