What do you think is an idea size for CRC? As a former Peace Corps member, I know how large that program is - would a goal be deployment of several 1000 professionals? Do you see the Standby Corps filling a majority or minority of positions? I'm very interested in joining, and think this is a great initiative - thanks for your hard work!

Yes! Where or Where is the Loop? Where is the reciprocation! When I was 2 & 1/2 years of age, I was seperated from my Father, and on my own, had to deal with George H.W. Bush, Sr., and friends, who wanted help with the return of the remains of Korean War MIA Pilots, downed in China and North Korea, and also help with the CIA, in cleaning it up! I helped, where is the reciprocation, since I was told that these matters were my business and not of my parents.
