Summary Note

Wriston decided that the State Department needed to be restructured. In this, It was decided that, rather than having two different services, the departmental officer and the foregin service officer, it would be best if the two were merged into one. This eliminated the job of the departmental officer, which Kenneth was. Kenneth, however, decided to stay in the position until he could solve his dilemna with the knowledge that, although being allowed to mantain his position, he would have no opportunity for advancement.
