Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Returned to Omaha. Then to Des Moines then to Virginia, then to Michigan. Writing/editing. Have lived in Michigan since 1979. Now work at Lansing Community College.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Great learning experience. Still wish the Peace Corps had sent me where I had greater strengths. When they couldn't place you to use your training and experience, they made an English teacher out of you. C'est la vie. Still appreciated being able to learn another language and find out that not all the world revolves around the U.S.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from our group who trained in Brattleboro, VT from May 5 - July 3, 1969.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Work for peace.
