I was in your training cohort and served in Herat too with my then-husband Victor Levine. He's the one that grew bored with teaching and started the Herat Women's Center. Any of that sound familiar?
I live in the suburbs of Boston now and am a college professor. I recently met a New York Times reporter who had spent a lot of time in Afghanistan in 2001 and we had a good time reminiscing.
Good seeing your name again after all these years,Anne
