Anniversary of JFK’s Speech at the University of Michigan

The Peace Corps did not officially start until March 1, 1961, but President John F. Kennedy first brought the idea of the Peace Corps to light on October 14, 1960, while addressing students at the University of Michigan (woot, my home state!).

I am feeling proud to be a member of the Peace Corps today!
