Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Was married 32 years to PC partner, had five kids, divorced and remarried

Univeristy 1973. Received faculty appointment U of Michigan Medical
School after earning respiratory therapy credential. Moved into hospital
administration through quality assurance and risk management for 15
years. Am semi-retired writing and thinking in Oregon.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Can't say that I made much difference by being there. Certainly didn't
cause any problem. It was a good idea and perhaps did affect things
locally. I'd do it again I suppose though at age 60 I'm not as adaptible as I
was back then. I certainly would recommend that anyone interested in
going be provided the chance to train and go.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Looking for Phil and Nancy Jones - divorced so Nancy's name may have
changed. Also looking for George and Liz Hart - same situation.
