Sixty-eight year-old veteran of the Information Wars confirms to NATO ally that he is still ‘Vividly Alive’

Today, in an example of the lasting power of USIA Public Diplomacy and the new power of social media, Harry Kuiper, a former Dutch journalist, posted a question about an American embassy Information Officer he knew in the 1970’s:

Is Mr. Woody Demitz still vividly alive and looking as he likes?

In less than two hours, Woody responded.

Dag Meneer Kuiper! Hoe gaat ‘t met jouw? Ik voel me niet zo slechts. En jij?
