1963: vernon & betsy young served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia in zorgowee beginning in 1963
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer vernon & betsy young can be contacted at vernyoungaaoldcom
Country of Service: Liberia
Training Group: 3
Cities you served in: zorgowee
Arrival Year: 1963
Departure Year: 1965
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Peace Corps experience opened many doors for us. We have taught, raised a family, dabbled in local politics and even flying. We've retired but, remain active.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
We both still believe we gained more from our experience in Liberia we could have possibly given. If we, as Americans, would accept and be as kind to strangers with strange ways as the people of Zorgowee were to us, the world would be a better place,
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone but, particularly anyone familiar with or having served in Zorgowee
