Message for U.S. Citizens: Thanksgiving Message from Charge d’Affaires William Popp

On behalf of the entire U.S. Diplomatic Mission to Brazil, my family and I extend warm greetings and best wishes to everyone celebrating Thanksgiving in Brazil this year.
Thanksgiving is an opportunity to express gratitude for what we cherish most – a loving family, close friendships, good health, peace, and prosperity. Wherever you are spending this special American holiday, may you have the chance to reflect on the blessings that you have received during the past year.
This Thanksgiving, all of us in the U.S. Mission are thankful for the opportunity to serve the United States of America overseas and grateful for our continued strong friendship with the people of Brazil. We wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

William Popp, Chargé d’Affaires
