There are not really words to convey the profound appreciation of the Department of State and the entire United States Government for the performance of your team... the onsite FBI team told my Consul that they had rarely seen a security plan better executed – testament to your team’s courage, professionalism and patriotism... you kept our diplomats safe. God bless you, and thank you for all that you do.
