Ankara, Turkey, October 1, 1957: Don Ghornton's attempt at bronco busting ended only three seconds after it began during a Wild West rodeo staged by the U.S. Logistic Group (TUSLOG). The rodeo itself was much more successful than Ghornton's ride, drawing more than 10,000 cheering Turks and Americans to a huge arena built by U.S. personnel for the occasion.
