Dear Mr. Pesavento,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located two series that may contain the information you seek. The first series is the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (International Security Affairs) Monthly Activity Reports, 1953 - 1954 in the Records of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (Record Group 330) that includes files on Turkey in Boxes 54 - 56. The second series is the Joint Construction Agency Transportation Files, 1953 - 1954 in the Records of U.S. European Command (Record Group 531) that consists of 22 archives boxes.
The staff of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) will be pleased to make these records available to you or your representative in the Textual Research Room located 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus. The Textual Research Room (Room 2000) hours are 8:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. The RDT2 consultation room hours are 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. No appointment is necessary. Prior to your visit, please consult College Park websites at https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/, https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/self-service-copying.html, and https://www.archives.gov/research/start/getting-started.pdf.
We also searched the Records of U.S. Air Force Commands, Activities, and Organizations (Record Group 342); the Records of Headquarters U.S. Air Force (Air Staff) (Record Group 341); and the Records of the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force (Record Group 340) without success. The Diyarbakır Air Station is now the Turkish Pirinçlik Air Base.
A history of The U.S. Logistics Group is available at https://www.merhaba-usmilitary.com/TUSLOGhistory.html.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
