Welcome to the 152nd!

Yesterday I saw some of the latest crop of Foreign Service Officers. I spent a few minutes at the GLIFAA (Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) table helping make sure that any LGBT folks among the new officers knew that:

1. We exist,

2. We are working for them even if they are afraid to come out, and

3. That it is more than possible to have a good career in the State Department as an out and proud LGBT person.

Beyond that, I just love seeing the new A-100s. I think I might bid to be the A-100 coordinator one day. I love their enthusiasm. it reminds me of how I felt back then and of why I joined.

So welcome to the 152nd!

Hey - FYI Digger...

My wife passed the OA! Not that I doubted it, but still... I'm excited.
