Mission Statement
Welcome vet students and best wishes for a great 2009.

I start by talking about the Peace Corp. Being the “packrat” that I am, I still have an application to the Peace Corp during vet school, 1989. The Peace Corp is the ingenious concept of our late President John F. Kennedy. What an incredible man! “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”, “We go to the moon not because it is easy, but because it is hard”, “Ich bin ein Berliner”. When I think of a “World Citizen”, JFK comes to mind. We could use more leaders like him with human compassion, courage, accountability, and Peace Corp vision of everyday people trying to make the world a better place. Even though I did not join the Corp, JFK’s vision, inspiration, and spirit is strong in the mission of the International ZEW Club.
