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 wife Milena and I extend warmest greetings and best wishes to everyone celebrating Thanksgiving in Brazil.  


Thanksgiving is of course a time to celebrate all the things that we cherish most – a loving family, close friendships, good health, peace, and prosperity.  Wherever you are spending the holiday, may you be surrounded by dear friends and family as we all reflect on the blessings that we 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 overseas, and particularly grateful for the strong friendship that we enjoy with Brazil, based on our solid foundation of shared values.  On this quintessentially American holiday, we wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! 


William Popp, Charge d’Affaires
