Trailing Houses is a private, moderated group for sharing information related to the United States Foreign Service.  We welcome FSOs, EFMs and employees of other agencies serving at Embassies overseas under Chief of Mission authority.  Whether you are seeking information on overseas schools, conditions at post, PCSing, or need to post an ad for your rental property, TH is the place to ask questions (or provide helpful answers).

DO research potential posts, share relevant articles, ask about packing/moving logistics, share recipes, verify FAM references, and mention de-stressers and family activities for wherever you are in the world!
DON'T post Classified information, CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information, which replaces SBU (sensitive but unclassified) information)), or use Trailing Houses for direct fundraising.

We are very pro-EFM business on Trailing Houses and we encourage entrepreneurial EFMs to share their products, websites and ideas with the group as a whole. Be aware that not all businesses or products will appeal to all of our members, so please limit your business-related posts to once a month. 
$52.12 of $500 per month
When I reach $500/month, I’ll begin interviewing NoVA/DC/MD providers each month: realtors, property managers, pet shippers, and will post a video to the feed.
