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.

Peace Corp Physical Education Program in Venezuela high schools ran until at least 1967. I was a volunteer in the PE Education IV program. We were deployed to Venezuela in June 1965 to 1967. Please correct the dates for that program to extend through June 1967.
