President Bush spoke to State Department employees in the State Department on their work during the Persian Gulf war. He thanked and lauded the employees for their long hours and hard work during the war, and said the simple contrast of good versus evil that was inherent in the Persian Gulf war made it easier to remain motivated during the duration of the conflict. During the president’s remarks, he recognized individuals and bureaus which had worked hard during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, and applause broke out when former Ambassador to Iraq April Glaspie’s name was mentioned. He also recognized employees of the State Department who had died during their work for the department and their country. close
