Other Countries you served in, Training Group Name Arrival Year, Departure Year, Work Description:
Served only in Honduras. Arrived for training in Ponce on April 1, 1971 (can't remember # of group, etc.). Arrived in Honduras in early July 1971 and lived in Choluteca. I left Honduras in early September 1973 (just prior to hurricane Fifi, which hit north coast). I originally worked in Choluteca with Facach, the Honduran government agency overseeing credit co-ops, but moved over to Caritas (still in PC) and worked with consumer co-ops in the south.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I am a retired banker/CFO living in Bangkok, Thailand. I have been married for 28 years, meeting my Thai/American wife in grad school in Dallas.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
We went in thinking we would be able to give a great deal, but in the end I think we got out of it more than we ever could give. It was a great experience.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone in Honduras between 1971 and 1973.

This is your old P.C. buddy Bob Hess. I have been wondering what happened to you for the last 30 years. I checked facebook, but did not find anything, so I checked returned peace corps volunteers and there you were.
I do not care to get too personal on this public posting area, but I would love to hear how you have been and renew our friendship. I will send something to your Yahoo account.
