Foreign Service Officer Michael recently returned from serving one year in Monterrey, Mexico.  Shortly after Michael's family arrived in Monterrey, the post was declared unaccompanied.  Michael's family had to unexpectedly turn right back around and return to the United States while he remained at post for the next year.  Michael's son, Michael Jr., is seen in this video receiving his Medal and Certificate of Recognition on June 9, 2011 - in appreciation for the sacrifice asked of him while separated from his father.  Congratulations to Michael Jr.!

If you want information on how to nominate your child for a Medal and Certificate of Recognition, email us at: FLOaskUT@state.gov

Thanks for sharing this video with us!
