Ray Allen visited a US Military base in the city of Adana, which is located in Southern Turkey, in the framework of the 2016 Holiday tour, a notion of the United Service Organization which aims to keep overseas troops connected to family, home and country.
Interestingly, a Turkish civilian was allowed to enter the base, having formal credentials, and was able to take selfies with both the former NBAer, as well as actors Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans who are also featured on the tour!
Allen was spotted holding a machine gun, wearing his Jordan hoodie, while he also casually took pictures with the troops in the base.
The NBA legend later uploaded several pictures from his visit, on his instagram account, with one caption stating:
It was great to sit down and have dinner with the members of our armed forces. By us being here we brought a little bit of home with us. For the day hopefully it gave them a break from the norm.
It is to be noted that Allen is a military child and he spent time growing up in Saxmundham in England, Altus in Oklahoma, Edwards Air Force Base in California, and Germany.
