Hello Dan-

My name is Colleen Barry. I Think I remember training with you in SC and Makali. I left SL shortly after training, because of Milaria. It sounds like you accomplished something while in Sierra Leone. If I remember you correctly you were pretty focesed on your mission, I hope it turned out well for you. It sounds like it did.

I am preparing for a discussion group tomorrow for a local Middle School concerning serving in the Peace Corp. Browsing the internet I found this listing.

Anyway I hope all is well. It must have been something going back in 93. I wouldn't mind returning at some pioint to Sierra Leone.

Colleen
