State Department Postings Continued 2-3/22 xx - new update 3/23

My first and third overseas assignments were in Brazil. First, in Sao Paulo and second in Brasilia. In Sao Paulo in the 1970s. I was a consular officer, issuing visas to people who wanted to visit or immigrate to the United States. In Brasilia, I was the science officer, working mainly on nuclear proliferation and environmental issues. Argentina and Brazil abandoned their nuclear rivalry while I was there, and we made some slight progress in stopping deforestation of the Amazon.

My second overseas assignmen, Bangkok, Thailandt. In Bangkok I was in charge of the embassy's computer systems. The main users of the computers in the embassy were the consular section, which did background checks on visa applicants, and the administrative section which kept many databases on personnel and supplies. Outside of the embassy, special US government teams kept huge databases on Vietnamese who wanted to go to the US to live -- a program for refugees inside Thailand in camps along the border, and the Orderly Departure Program which provided periodic airline flights for Vietnamese still stuck in Vietnam.

My fourth overseas assignment was in Warsaw, Poland. Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam.

My last overseas assignment was Rome, Italy.

From the Watch Office I was assigned to the Brazil Desk in the Latin American Bureau, where I was an assistant to the senior desk officer. One of the main issues on the Brazil desk was a huge nuclear reactor sale to Brazil by Westinghouse, which Senator John Glenn blocked by passing a law saying that fuel for such reactors could be exported only if the recipient was a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Brazil was not. Because of my interest in this issue, I next went to the non-proliferation office in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research, where I worked on Latin American nuclear issues, as well as other scientific matters. From there I went to the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, where I worked on space arms control. After ACDA, I took a course in computer management in the State Departments Foreign Service Institute and then went to Thailand to manage Embassy Bangkok's computer systems. From Bangkok, I went to Brasilia, Brazil, where I worked again on nuclear non-proliferation, space, and environment issues. From Brazil, I returned to Washington to work on missile non-proliferation, heading up work on the Missile Technology Control Regime, which I had helped create in INR and which was then growing and adding members. From missile proliferation in PM, I moved to environmental affairs in the Oceans, Environment and Science Bureau. This office focused on preserving animals (the CITES convention and endangered species) and plants (the Biodiversity Convention and forestry agreements), as well as international health issues, mainly HIV/AIDS. After OES, I spent a year learn Polish and then went off to the American Embassy in Poland as Science Counselor, working mainly on science cooperation between the US and Poland following the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of Communist rule in Poland. I also helped create a Polish environmental NGO, the Ekofundusz, doing environmental projects using money from forgiven American loans. From Poland, I went to Rome, where I worked on non-proliferation and environmental issues. In Italy the main environmental issue was over fishing for swordfish in the Mediterranean. I retired from the Foreign Service in Rome.
