በኢትዮጵያ እና በሱማልያ መካከል በ 1969 ዎቹ መጨረሻ እና 1970 ዓም መጀመርያ ወደ ግንባር ለመዝመት ታጠቅ ጦር ሰፈር ለሚገቡ ሰልጣኞች በጎ ፍቃደኛ ዘማቾች እናቶቻችን እንጀራ ሲጋግሩ።ሀገር ይተጠበቀችው በእነኝህ እናቶችም ጭምር ነው።
The image was taken many moons ago in “Tateke Meda” (ታጠቅ ሜዳ) in the early stage of the historical Etho-Somalia bitter conflict over a border issue in the late1970s. So Tateke Meda has served as a temporary training and camping center for newly recruit Ethiopian Army from all over the land before heading to the front line. In that defining moment of our nation, our mothers from Addis Abeba and near by towns also volunteered daily to prepare a meal for the soldiers as they are seen in the image. They too played a significant part and gave all they had for their country many moons ago, and now many moons later I remember them. I remember you.
