1973: Mike Rostron served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Afghanistan in Kabul beginning in 1973

Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Married 1978. Two girls, now 26 and 17. Spent many years in Alaska, now in Bellingham Wa. See my web site at: http://web.mac.com/mikerostron/
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It is so sad to see the state of Kabul now, compared to what it was when I was there; in retrospect 1973 may have been the the end of the best era in the countries history. I often wonder how things might be if general Dauod would have survived and his ideas of modernization carried out.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from cycle 15, but especially Keith Heldenbrand, John Mizell, Tony & Dennis (can't remember last names). Did Shahmamud Zadran survive the Russian invasions and Taliban regimes?
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Keep a diary of your experiences, especially with names of friends and locals who were important to you.
