RPCV Bill Kendall wrote: “John Schadler saved lives, he was a great doctor. I ran into him again when I joined the Foreign Service, and John retired from the State Department about 1985. He returned to Texas. After all those years abroad he was killed in a car accident in Texas in the late 1980s. I, myself, and several other volunteers owed him our lives.”
