In 2020 the Peace Corps evacuated nearly 7,000 volunteers from over 60 countries as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe.

Now, two years later, the program has started to return volunteers to overseas service. Among those returning is Boise local Gregory Ripke. He joined Idaho Matters to talk more about his upcoming mission.
