Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I am retired after a rewarding career of 34 years in the Federal Civil
Service as a personnel management specialist and as a training
specialist, primarily in the USDA.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I still remember the people of Colombia with whom I worked during
my service. They are an inspiration to me to this day. I also
remember the principles and practices of Community Development
and have used them repeatedly in an attempt to benefit the
communities in which I have resided.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Don't forget why you joined the Peace Corps in the first place, and
bring that motivation to bear on whatever you are doing. That will
take you a looong way!
