To honor Secretary Kerry's final diplomatic mission as Secretary of State I cut a quick video that was released through the Department of State's social media properties throughout the world.
It's been a pleasure to work with Secretary Kerry over the last couple of years. He's a consummate professional and someone I truly respect. Secretary, thank you for your service.
Context: On January 14, 2017, during the Secretary's final trip abroad, he traveled to the Bay Hap River in Vietnam to further environmental and reconciliation efforts. The region is personally significant to the Secretary as it's the exact location he served as a Naval officer during the Vietnam War nearly 50 years ago.
