I think we are missing some countries only 123 --Willd 14:01, 16 February 2008 (PST)

[edit] Also:

I second the request below to add Venezuela. I don't know how to do this edit myself. I was a volunteer there in 1967-69. David Hunsberger

Guinea-Bissau; Eritrea; are added --Willd 14:08, 26 February 2008 (PST)

Also Venezuela. I was there from 1974-76. Couldn't figure out how to add it. Could somebody do it for me. Marianne Thomas

No Eastern Caribbean country is listed. St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Dominica, Montserrat, and Grenada have all had Volunteers. St. Lucia was one of the very first, with a program that began in 1961 or 62. I was on St. Kitts from 1987 to 1989.

Second that on the E. Caribbean. I note that "Windward Islands" is listed. Technically this is a sub-set of the Eastern Caribbean, and as far as I know, has never been an administrative designation for PC purposes in the region. I would suggest changing "Windward" to "Eastern Caribbean", because otherwise the information seemed to correspond. St. Lucia has been continually active since 1961, and St. Kitts was (re) added to current service in 2004. The PC headquarters is in St. Lucia, with a satellite office in each island-nation. -Caroline B. 3/28/08

We do have Eastern Caribbean which was accidentally left out the country list. They were originally not separated since the official Welcome Book was collectively for the entire region. Creating new pages for each individual country is definitely encouraged! 'Windward Islands' is listed since the table included in that article was given in a response from a FOIA request asking for the assignments history of all countries for all years. They specifically listed that one separately in the excel file. Mike 16:34, 28 March 2008 (PDT)
