I will say it again, so everybody knows. Gaddi Vasquez lies about Safety and Security of Volunteers.

If 95% of RPCV's feel safe then why didn't they call the Volunteers who fell victim in the 1990's and into Present. Vasquez claims the Dayton Daily News articles are slanted. The Poll he quotes is a joke and very slanted. He actually stated this quote in the hearings. No wonder Senators rolled there eyes. They no the truth.

Remember Peace Corps has tried to sweep those former volunteers under the rug with Wrongful separations and lies about their service in order to portray there is no problem. They never resolve the problems these victims have encountered in the field. They will blame you for serving. So remember,know the truth about the administration, planning gliches and oversight mechanisms before joining. Pressure the agency if they put your son or daughter out their alone with hardly any resources or supervision. Or Place you in a bad housing situation.

We can advise you on what Congressman,Senator, and News Agencies to call when Peace Corps places your volunteer in jeopardizing situation.
