“January 20th at 12:00 EST marks the end of my service to the USUN Mission in Rome, Italy.”
“Today as I depart through the airport in Rome with a few of my Security Team and the US Embassy expediters all apart of my Rome family I said thank you and we said farewell, not goodbye. There’s more work to be done. Proud to serve the United States of America. God bless.”
