  • Thank you, John and Marian! These books as well as how to write a memoir were inspired by PC Worldwide. Keep up the good work!

  • I read my dad’s bibliography to find books on Panama before reporting for duty. I read them. They helped!

  • Hi, John. I haven’t been active on Peace Corps Worldwide for a long time, but it is an important service to a lot of people, especially to those of us who write. Thank you for your Third Goal service! As for the Lihosit books, I have them on my shelf and I use them as reference tools, and I get some excellent reads from there. Both of you have made impressive contributions to the Peace Corps and to all the RPCVs whose memories may need a little prompting on occasion to remember how meaningful an experience the Peace Corps was for us.

  • Lawrence Lihosit researched, wrote, and published the gold standard for the first fifty years of the Peace Corps. He documents
    who went where and when and why. Congratulations, Lorenzo, and thank you.
