Ryan Crocker on the Foreign Service

“The Foreign Service still largely tends to be from the coasts, not a lot from inland America […]. It’s because people don’t know about the Foreign Service or how to get involved. […] I would like for young men and women to know that Foreign Service is an option … One of the greatest modern officers in the Foreign Service was a graduate from UI […]. “Go to hard places and do hard things. At the end of the day, life is about what challenges you stepped up to. Whether it’s the Western Expansion or World War II, we have always stepped up and that’s what makes us great.”
