** I received the following note from an FSO who previously served in Pakistan: “Under 2006, you have “Ahmed Ifi khar {Iraq}”. It should be “Iftikhar Ahmed” and {Pakistan} — he was the LES who was killed with David Foy in the Karachi bombing. (Iftikhar, which means “Honor” in Persian, is his first name, though the concept of first name/family name doesn’t really exist in Pakistan).”

I have corrected the list above and checking with State/HR if this is a magazine error or a plaque error.  Thanks Dakota!
