Great interview! I really enjoyed it. It has increased my own latent desire to work in Afghanistan, and I hope to get a chance to in the next five years. I especially liked when the Interviewer pointed out what a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer said about how Conservatives become more Liberal in the Peace Corps and Liberals become more Conservative. The best answer would be that people just get some perspective, and little is more important than that.
