SUBJECT: VISIT OF USS KEARSARGE - EMBASSY MANAGUA SUPPORT

REF: SECSTATE 22148

1. (U) We greatly appreciate the opportunity to host the USS
Kearsarge and welcome the request to provide a foreign policy
advisor (POLAD) to the Command Element during its upcoming
deployment to Nicaragua. Nicaragua's spot at the front of
the deployment requires that we staff the POLAD position for
nearly the entire month of August. Given the length of this
mission and the fact it falls in the midst of our peak Summer
rotation schedule, the Country Team has decided to divide the
assignment between two officers.

2. (SBU) Our Deputy Political Counselor, Jesse Curtis, will
plan to meet the ship in Miami NLT August 8 and ride the ship
home. Mr. Curtis will remain on the ship until o/a August 16
when he will be relieved by Political Officer Michael Garcia,
who will remain on-board until relieved by POLAD from Embassy
Bogota.

3. (U) Embassy Managua POC is Dep Political Counselor, Jesse
Curtis. email: CurtisJS@state.sgov.gov; CurtisJS@state.gov;
phone 505/252-7128 (w) 505/810-3928 (cell)
