Ambassador Tibor Nagy attends the 50th celebration of Foreign Affairs Day

Ambassador Tibor Nagy, Vice Provost for International Affairs, was in Washington, DC, for the 50th celebration of the US Department of State's Foreign Affairs Day. The celebration, which received a write-up in State Magazine, is described as being "a time to salute employees and retirees for their dedication and service, and honor those whose lives were lost on duty overseas." The day's events, which provided former colleagues the opportunity to reconnect, were hosted by Director General Arnold Chacon and co-sponsored by AFSA and DACOR.

President Obama acknowledged the occasion in a special White House message: "Every day we wake up to a world that is more secure and more peaceful thanks to dedicated Americans in the U.S. Foreign Service ...Your tireless work advances the causes of freedom and opportunity, and your devoted service reflects an unwavering commitment to our nation's founding ideals."
