Peace Corps Thailand and American Citizens Abroad

Peace Corps Online: Directory: Thailand: Message Center for Thailand RPCV: Peace Corps Thailand and American Citizens Abroad

By Frank G Anderson on Sunday, April 28, 2002 - 9:17 am: Edit Post

Greetings to volunteers, former volunteers, and other American citizens abroad or who have been abroad.
We had a great warden's conference at the US EMbassy this last week in Bangkok, attended by volunteer Americans from all over the country. Almost like a Peace Corps gathering. The week before I was also pleased to attend the 40th anniversary of Peace Corps in Thailand. It proves something directly opposite what Amarin Khoman said recently in a Thai language interview on local TV: "Americans never give anything for nothing." We do, we did, and we will continue to.
Best regards to all,

So glad to hear you point of view. Most of us RPCVS from Thailand and I trust from most other countries, value their Peace Corps experiences so much that they most often choose to share them with only a few select persons who may appreciated the world view, value other cultures, and may come close to understanding what the immersion experience of working in totally different language and culture has meant to our own development. I have said since I first returned that I got so much more out of my volunteer experience than I gave. In that sense, I didn't give anything for nothing. >

I was in Peace Corps Thailand 1966~ 1968 in Amphur Wat Sing, Changwat Chainat.

I'd really like to be in contact with some of the volunteers in my group and wonder if there's a list of former volunteers someplace that I could access. I know there was a fire years ago that wiped out a lot of records but if you know of a way to look up some of my old brothers and sisters of that time, I'd be in your debt to know of it.

Thanks much.

Duncan

I am looking for Ms. Sandra D. Linskog who was in Bannasan School, Suratthani, during 1974-1975. Anyone who know her address kindly inform me by e-mail at thongchc@mfa.go.th
Thank you.
