Default US Embassy Staff

Hello...

I have a question, Is there anyone on here who knows what the staff positions at US Embassies, and US Consulates are.

I know the USMC Embassy Protection Detail has Watchstanders, but I don't know what other positions exist.

Just an idea that the evacuation of State Department officials might make a good adventure...

Figured I would add my question here as well. Are embassy staffs subordinate to any particular Division or Unit. Same question about the guard staff for nuclear weapons on ships and bases.

Law put together an online campaign based around the evacuation of a US embassy in Africa. Hopefully it won't be too long before he returns from killing bad guys and could provide some info on this subject.

Law has detailed it out somewhere on his hard drive...

I seem to recll there are a number (maybe 6-8) of battalions, organized on a regional basis. They are independent units, with small detachments (less than platoon size) assigned to individual embassies. One interesting detail is that there are no officers assigned to individual embassy details - the only officers in the battalions are at the HQ locations, essentially administrative, located in friendly states (I seem to recall that the HQ for the European battalion, for example, was in London or Frankfurt).

Re: the Embassy staff positions, it might be worth googling a couple of Embassies and see if you can get lists of key personnel...I found one link for the US Embassy in Tunis, but there may be others

Its broken down into regions. And the stations are also divided into regular duty stations and "hardship" stations. The hardship stations are usualy in 3rd World S-holes. The plus side is you get extra pay and you can live like a king.

Anyone who went to the P.I. and Thailaind back in the day knows what it is like.
