Dear RPCVs, Karen White and Rod Pettigrew homecoming to Kedah & Perlis last week,and the 3-day feast given in her honor at the village where she served as a nurse over 40 years ago,do make me feel good to be involved with the Peace Corps, albeit only as an instructor.In my opinion, Peace Corps is the most effective foreign policy for USA.Thanks Peace Corps.
