. . . Hilda, do you find the deprived children tend to be deprived mentally, too? . . .

[Description by Uncle Ricky]

VISTA - Volunteers In Service To America was one of the Great Society government programs to "win the war on poverty." This exhibit features 3 five-minute promotional programs hosted by long-time WMCA/WABC personality Herb Oscar Anderson.

Otis Redding, Paul Simon and The Byrds are also featured with musical selections. Best guess: These programs were produced in 1966.

Voices of Vista also features actual Vista Volunteers who thought they could make a difference. Wouldn't we all like to know what happened to these Volunteers In Service to America? Did they have great success and/or much happiness in their later lives, as a reward for their good deeds?

And what happens if you write to "Box A, Washington, D.C." today? I mean, Box A sounds so very important.

Herb Oscar Anderson passed away January 29, 2017. He was 89.
