Memorial Day is about remembering those who have sacrificed their lives in service of this country. Let’s not forget that there is another kind of service for our country, and take a moment to remember the nearly 300 Peace Corps Volunteers who lost their lives during their time abroad: the Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers.
Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers is a web site dedicated to these volunteers, with the ultimate goal of honoring their memory with a memorial in Washington, DC. Take a moment to read about these individuals who gave it all:
We honor both these fallen volunteers, as well as the members of the armed services who gave their lives. I like to think they all had a common goal for the world: peace.
