    I had forgotten that Sargent Shriver started the Peace Corps. Did you get sworn in by him and did you march to this song? His wife, Eunice Kennedy Shrver, started Special Olympics.

      I don’t know if he swore anybody in himself. The ambassador swore us in. I didn’t know this song back then, and we didn’t march.

      I once heard Shriver speak at a Peace Corps conference in Washington. He told us when President Kennedy asked him to be the first head of Peace Corps, the President said if it failed it would be easier to fire a relative. Shriver was his brother-in-law.
