I'm currently serving as CD for Kenya and am trying to put together a 50 year retrospective on the program here (actually 47th for Kenya). The land resettlement Vols fascinate me...such a delicate issue and politically charged yet so many Vols in the 60s worked on it.
Would you care to share any insights/anecdotes/pictures from your service? I'd love to include int the retro. Also, could you tell me who your CD was and who your APCD was? And would you have any contact info for them (assuming they're alive!)
Thanks so much,
