Tens of thousands have served in the Peace Corps since its founding over 40 years ago, working in more than 130 countries around the world.

Since 9/11, the importance of the work of volunteers abroad - and their role in bringing understanding of other cultures back home - has been further underscored. The Peace Corps has also set its sights on broadening and deepening work in the Islamic world.

What vision does Vasquez - a Californian whose nomination stirred controversy among returned volunteers - have for the organization and Peace Corps place in American global engagement?

Thank you for having Michael Rupert address you membership August 31st. A friend down-loaded a copy from the From-The-Wilderness website(www.fromthewilderness.com/PDF/Commonwealth/pdf) and gave it to me the next day . We all need to know about Bush's clandestine American Empire and the pending disaster that is becoming known as "peak oil." I hate being blindsided, how about you?
