Meeting Netherlands Ambassador to the United States

At the Netherlands Embassy ceremony honoring my Uncle Walter, I had the pleasure of meeting Brigitta Tazelaar, Netherlands Ambassador to the United States. It was International Women's Day, and the ambassador was wearing suffragette white. While we were discussing the status of women's rights, I complimented her on the blue hanger that held her staff badge, and she surprised me by removing the hanger and placing it around my neck. Such a gracious gesture by a very impressive woman. It capped off a special day for me and my family.
