On behalf of the worldwide USAID team, I express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Mark Mitchell, an accomplished Foreign Service Officer who died in a tragic accident on Sunday in Georgia. USAID staff work around the world, often at risk to themselves, to promote a better future for all. His memory lives on in the lasting impact of his 25 years as a dedicated public servant. In addition to serving in the U.S. military, Mark faced some of the most challenging operating environments USAID officers confront worldwide, as he served in Djibouti and Afghanistan before taking up his post in Georgia. His passion for country, for service, and for improving the lives of those in need reached communities far and wide, and touched many here at home.
