Okay, I'm not gonna lie... I can only identify two of them. Not having a TV has definitely hurt me a bit in my ability to recognize people's faces!

Forgot to add the names! Thanks for reminding me!

Does JFK count? His dad was an ambassador in London, or are we only talking about lower ranking Foreign Service types?

Good one! Will add.

Pretty cool! I have to admit, I didn't get the answer. But my hubby did - I hate it when that happens (which is most of the time;-)

This is a fun list.

I've read before, having grown up as a fan of The Police, that Copeland's dad worked for the CIA. Maybe his cover was as an FSO though.
