Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Daniel Edward Pilcher can be contacted at danpilcheracomcastdnet
Country of Service: Sierra Leone
Training Group: Chiefdom Development
Cities you served in: Sumbuya
Arrival Year: 1969
Departure Year: 1971
I served in the rural development group that arrived in July 1969. We trained at Njala College and in Bo before being sent to our villages in Sept. 1969. My then-wife Frieda was in the child-and-nutrition program.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I now work at the state chamber of commerce in Colorado. I worked for 18 years at the National Conference of State Legislatures, also based in Denver. I have four children. And, along the way, I picked up two graduate degrees from the University of Denver.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The Peace Corps service was a turning point in my life, to put it mildly.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Bob and Julie Granger and anyone else in our group because we are planning a reunion in Oct. 2007.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Try to reconnect with those in your group sooner rather than later because you shared such a special, unique experience in your lives.
