Hi there,

I'm a reporter at New York Magazine and a friend of several Peace Corps volunteers, and I was hoping that I might be able to speak to someone about a possible story.

One of my friends who is currently planning to go leave for his placement early next year is also a veteran, having done military service with the Navy for the past several years (he did a tour in Iraq before being honorably discharged). I find it an interesting parallel, and am interested in learning about other volunteers that have come from a military background (whether you served, or are from a family whose members have served) to learn about your perspectives on service and your decision to join the Corps.

I'd love to discuss this further with you, please feel free to contact me through the info below. Thanks so much for your help.
