Where was Tom Wolf?

July 12, 2014

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf was born in 1948. I also was born in 1948.

Wolf says that when he was 19, he was in India with the Peace Corps. When I was 19, I lived on a naval base in Newport, R.I. waiting on my husband to come home from overseas, while writing to my three brothers, all of whom also served honorably in our military during the Vietnam War.

Our nation called, our family answered. Where was Tom Wolf back then? I distinctly remember the Peace Corps was synonymous with draft-dodging during the Vietnam War era.
