From Peace Corps Wiki
I am one of many former Peace Corps volunteers who absolutely thank John F. Kennedy for giving me the opportunity to serve my Country from 1962 to 1964. What I experienced and learned while working with the poor in the barrios of Venezuela changed the course of my life as it has so many others who served in the Peace Corps.
Also, whether a person served in Venezuela, Korea, Ethiopia or Nigeria we all have an understanding of the culture and the goodness of their people. This was our reward in life.
Today I am blessed to run a non-profit foundation in Venezuela and have the opportunity to return often to set up baseball clinics and start other projects for the kids of the barrios.
