Death of Ambassador Ron Schlicher, Former Chief COU

The MFO was very sad to learn of the passing of former COU Chief Ron Schlicher on 26 September 2019.


Ambassador Schlicher served as the MFO’s Chief of the Civilian Observer Unit from July 1991 to August 1992 during a temporary secondment away from the U.S. State Department. The MFO joins other colleagues in recalling fondly his great humor and dedication to promoting peace in the Middle East.
