Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After finishing graduate school I went to work for USAID and returned to Afghanistan to work from January 1977 to January 1979, having experienced the April 1978 bloody coup. I stayed with USAID for almost 32 years, and had wonderful work experiences in Afghanistan, Egypt, Peru, Nicaragua, Washington and El Salvador. Retired six months ago and we live in the Washington D.C. area.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Was one of the best experiences in my life and got me interested in development issues which I then worked on for more than 30 years,
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone from cycle 14b?? We have been in touch with Bill Witt and with our admin officer rahim Wakili.
