Visit with Philippine Consul General Calonge

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of sharing a light dinner with two distinguished gentlemen from the Philippine Consulate of Chicago; Consul General Generoso D.G. Calonge and Vice Consul Ricarte B. Abujuella III. 

Being a successful foreign service officer requires special talents. dedication and special talents. serving in the Foreign Service requires work takes a special type of person. Intelligence, discretion and a desire to serve the best interests of their country are required. Consul General Calonge has certainly exhibited these traits, serving as the Ambassador to Israel prior to being posted to Chicago. 

Filipinos in the U.S. can take pride in the quality of their foreign service officers and the positive image they present to the world.
