Revised history

Peace Corps Online: Peace Corps News: Headlines: Peace Corps Headlines - 2003: August 2003 Peace Corps Headlines: August 13, 2003 - PCOL Exclusive: A Proposal to expand and revitalize the NPCA : Revised history

By Margaret Riley (mriley) on Wednesday, September 10, 2003 - 7:59 pm: Edit Post

I've shared my comments with John at length, but wanted to comment here that the history of the NPCA outlined in his modest proposal isn't quite accurate, nor are some of the actions attributed to some individuals and groups. While there are certain merits to his proposal, I'd feel better if the statement of facts outlined was more accurate.

Margaret Riley
President of the NPCA from 1983-1986 (when it was still the National Council of RPCVs)

Thank you Margaret for monitoring this. Those of us who were at Omaha in the fall of '79 need not be lost in someone's casual rhetoric. (It is difficult to monitor Web sites when the only access is dial-up, hence the delay in my seeing this.)
