  1. In the USA, what many nations call the Foreign Ministry is called the Department of State or "State Department". A foreign service officer is a member of the diplomatic corps, a career diplomat who works for the State Dept. They are not commissioned officers, as in the military. It is a civilian function of government. And "foreign service" is not a proper noun, but an informal one, so is not capitalized.
