Returned Peace Corps volunteers Afghanistan

For part of one afternoon during the 50th anniversary, a little Peace Corps movie was just downstairs from the most treasured archives in the land. Once in Afghanistan screened at the National Archives, which is the permanent home of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The movie has been back and forth across the country from venues as large as the Starz Film Center in Denver to the tiny Back Hills Grill in Kentucky, and we appreciate every host. However, Programming Director Tom Nastick’s invitation to bring it to the Archives blew us away.

The documentary would not have been possible without the photographic and film archives of members of the group and their friends. Thank you, National Archives, for maintaining our national documents and for welcoming us to your sacred halls.
