Fulfilling a Lifelong Dream, Part One: A Blog Entry From Volunteer Positive (January 10, 2012)
"From the time President Kennedy introduced the Peace Corps while I was in high school in Rhode Island I wanted to someday be a volunteer. ... but [at nearly 60] they did not want me because I was HIV positive. ... It is now January 2012, and at the vibrant age of 65 I am proudly serving with the inaugural Volunteer Positive endeavor in Chiang Mai, Thailand."
