Peace Corps: The Toughest Job

Mar 1, 2001

Peace Corps: The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love! That’s right! Today the Peace Corps is 40 years old. Hug a returned Volunteer and celebrate the good work of Americans in developing nations. The best part of the Peace Corps, really, is the education of Americans about the nations and peoples and villages and lands and oceans beyond our own borders. Please visit VanAmericanNius Online to read about the country where Erin and I served. At the bottom of the VanAm home page, you’ll see the RPCV web ring, which will lead you on a tour of some 90 web sites created by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. You can also read about my departure from Paama Island. My father, Joe, was also a Volunteer, from 1965 to ‘67 in the Dominican Republic. Maybe he’ll post a memory of two of his service in the Zuiker Forum.
