Articles and Advice

In this section we offer some “greatest hits” from past issues of our monthly newsletter, Global Link. These articles, written by members of the Foreign Service community, provide first-hand experience and advice about issues faced by all of us either at home or abroad.

Attention Community Liaison Office Coordinators!

Community Liaison Office Coordinators (CLOs) at posts worldwide should feel free to reprint the articles in this section in their post newsletters. We do ask that you credit the original author of the article, and include the following blurb to refer readers to our website:

“From Global Link, a newsletter of the Associates of the American Foreign Service Worldwide. AAFSW advocates for Foreign Service families. Visit us online at for more information.”
