REMEMBERING THE FALLEN
In May, we honored Steven L.
Farley during our annual memorial
ceremony on Foreign Service Day.
This solemn tradition allows us to
reflect on the inherent challeng-
es and dangers of our profession
– challenges we accept willingly,
recognizing the unavoidable risk
for those deployed worldwide to
carry out a vital national security
mission. Then-Secretary of State
John Kerry honored us with his
participation in the ceremony.
