“…we have, in this country, an immense reservoir of such men and women–anxious to sacrifice their energies and time and toil to the cause of world peace and human progress.”  ~   J.F.K., March 1, 1961.

Since the Peace Corps began in 1961, more than 200,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in over 140 countries.  Of these dedicated men and women, 304 have sacrificed not only their energies and time, but also their lives while pursuing the Peace Corps mission. They are honored here in celebration of their lives and service, and to preserve their legacy.

  • We believe in telling their stories in order to remember, comfort, and inspire.
  • We seek to create a community of support for families, friends, and all those whose lives FPCVs have touched. Please leave a comment,  find us on Facebook or reach out directly.
  • We also wish to highlight that good continues both marked and unmarked by the names of Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers. Many families have created funds that support education, clean water, and development around the world.
