I tried and tried to come up with something profound to say about the recent attack in Benghazi that killed four American diplomats. At the end of the day it all just felt wrong. I'm just a week into my own FS journey and I can't talk about the men who were killed as if I understand their sacrifice, at least not yet.
Instead I'll just say that the example of these officers - of generous and courageous service - and the example of those who knew them well here in Washington, has made me very proud to join their ranks.
I promise a lengthy update soon about my weekend trip to Arkansas, the bid-list, and anything else that comes to mind. Until then, all the best.
