Married for 42 years to the woman I courted by slow mail from Sarawak. We have 3 grown daughters. Retired from full time engineering in 2002, do some consulting now and have taken up woodworking.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
My Peace Corps service was a most rewarding experience with life-long benefits in awareness of different conditions from what we so often take for granted.
