The Peace Corps Response Team(s) Sending Out Kind Words To The World
As 2013 comes to a close, we at Peace Corps Response (PCR) would like to take this opportunity to say thank you. We appreciate your commitment to international service and your continued support of PCR. Whether you are a returned Volunteer or are contemplating service in 2014, we value your being a part of the ongoing international development dialogue.
Over the past year, thousands of people in our host countries have benefited from the 248 PCR Volunteers who have served in high-impact assignments in over 50 countries. In addition, those returned PCR Volunteers brought their service back to America and shared their experience, and host country cultures with their communities and professional networks.
This spirit of world peace, friendship and service is contagious and we look forward to spreading that message with you in the New Year.
With warm regards,
The Peace Corps Response team

Peace Corps Response Team?
Is that our old Crisis Corps that you named?
And what about the PC’s Democracy Corps?
Finally, remember the plan that Warren Wiggins and I put together back in February, 1993″ “A Proposal for President Clinton:
A New Peace Corps Project for Somalia & Yugoslavia”
Summary: Five-hundred (500) Volunteers in a program quickly established in Somalia and Yugoslavia focused on children’s health and education. The two taskforces would combine into assistance teams newly-recruited Peace Corps Volunteers, Volunteers from existing Peace Corps assignments, and Returned PCVs. The initial project would be short-term (in renewable 6-month increments) and because they would be going into harm’s way, would require a special training program. Teams would hit the ground running. They would be provided minimum security and protection by the U.S. military.
Let the good times roll!
