Service

"PCVs stay as you are be servants of Peace; work at home as you have worked abroad humbly, persistently, intelligently. Weep with those who are sorrowful. Care for those who are sick. Serve your wives. Serve your husbands. Serve your families. Serve your neighbors. Serve your cities. Serve the poor. Join others who serve!"

Sargent Shriver at the 40th Anniversary of Peace Corps,September 1986
