Author bio
Gary R. Lindberg is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in U. S. History during the hectic days of the Free Speech Movement. He responded to Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver’s call to volunteer. However, after graduation, to avoid the draft, he started to take steps to enter the Air Force until he received his invitation to join the Peace Corps. After his service, he entered the Navy instead of accepting his draft notice, went to San Francisco State University to get his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, and began a forty-three-year career in human resources. This book comes out following the sixtieth anniversary of the Peace Corps.
